Historical Victory by Bosnian Handball National Team

first_imgFormer coach of Handball national team of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Halid Demirovic, rated yesterday’s victory in Qatar as a historical one, in a talk for klix.ba“First half was full of anxiety. Still it was the first game and it didn’t seem  hat they were playing as agreed. At the beginning we had a lot of turnovers and Iran used them in one large pace, too big will and thanks to our mistakes in attacking. That led to the result of 16: 12, but coach Markovic surely found right words at the half- time“, said Demirovic for klix.ba referring to the results of Markovic’ s intervention in the locker room.“In the second half we saw that the defense played great, we were scoring from simple counterattacks, and the attack was more organized and that’s how Bosnia came to the series of 7: 0. It was historical victory and it is very important for the self- confidence and motivation before todays match against Austria“, said Demirovic.(Source: klix.ba/ photo oslobodjenje)last_img read more
