Selected statement Horațiu Pașca after winning from the start


“I knew about Angola that they are a team with very technical players, with great physical abilities, strength in speed, very agility, and very uncomfortable playing. It constantly changes the system of defense and attack, and that can cause problems for anyone.


We went into the game very well, conceded only 4 goals when we started having some problems in defense and lost the balls very easily, then we gave them the opportunity to score very quickly. I’m glad we kept our heads on our shoulders and that in the second half we were able to surprise them, finding solutions regardless of their playing systems.


I want to congratulate the girls on this victory, even if it came with some feelings. I think we controlled the match from start to finish, which gives us hope for the upcoming matches.”said Mukhtar Horațiu Pașca after the match, according to the Romanian Handball Federation.
