How will the team prepare for the tournament?
We are having 4 groupings, during which we play friendly games. We also took part in the 9th North Cup Dewelopeo in Poland. We will also have a grouping right before the European Championship.
What are the goals for the team at the U23 Championships?
Firstly, we have to think about every single game in the group. If we manage to pass the group, we can think about more and it will be lovely if we will pass to the semifinal, which is our aim and we will do our best to achieve it.
What are your expectations on the opponents in preliminary round (Group B)?
Every game will be a demanding battle.
Spain is a great team with a strong and attractive league. The players have got an experience of playing in a really high level. The team Spain can be seen as a group favorite.
Austria is a strong team. In addition it is a host of this part of tournament and the crowds will be another advantage for the team and can lead them to a really good result.
Great Britain is a solid team, which can be really dangerous especially in a tight game.
