Handball World Cup: Polish women start their rivalry with a match with Serbia

At the previous World Cup in 2019, the White-Reds were missing in Japan, who had to recognize the superiority of the Serbian team in the last phase of the qualifying round. The most successful team from the Balkans was in 2013, when they won the silver medal at the World Championships. In the semi-finals in Belgrade, they defeated Poland (24:18), which finally took fourth place, and in the final they lost to Brazil 20:22. Two years ago it was classified in the sixth position.

– The squad of Serbek has changed. Similarly to the team from Russia, many players thanked and quit playing for the national team. However, they were replaced by many equally strong players and we know perfectly well that it will not be easy – said one of the most experienced players in the national team, quarterback Kinga Achruk, quoted on the website of the Polish Handball Association.

In the next games of group B, the charges of the Norwegian coach Arne Senstad will play in Lliria (25 km from Valencia) on December 5 with the team of the Russian Handball Federation, and on December 7 with Cameroon. Both duels are scheduled for 18.

The title is defended by the Netherlands, which defeated Spain 30:29 in the match for gold two years ago. In the match for the bronze medal, Russia turned out to be better than Norway (33:28).
