“We are satisfied with the draw. I am glad that we will play with the host of the tournament because we expect that there will be a lot of spectators and it will be a nice experience for us. Our goal in this championship is a gold medal. It will be a great challenge because there are many good national teams. The least we want is one of the first three places, which lead to the World Cup in India.”
THOMAS OOSTENDORP: OUR GOAL IS THE GOLD MEDAL
The seven-time European champions Germany, the Netherlands, and Denmark will play in group “A” of the European Championship for female cadets, in addition to our national team. Matches in this group will be played in Sarajevo and Zenica. We talked to Thomas Oostendorp, head coach of the Netherlands, and asked him if they were satisfied with their opponents and what their ambitions were in this competition.
