Once again it’s a fantastic feeling to be part of the EHF-cup at this late stage and to play against top teams from Europe. Constanta is a really strong team and it will be very interesting to watch their team live in the handball metropol of Lund. Of course it will be very difficult for our team to reverse the big deficit of the first match 31-21 (15-10). But we have a good morale and a spirit to never give up.
The first match was a demonstration of power of the strong Romanian team, but he first 20 minutes LUGI was driving the bus and also had the lead! The aim with this match is to try to win it and give the home audience a good show. Of course You can never give up in handball and there is a chance that we can play a good home game and take the lead with a couple of goals in the beginning of the second half and then the away team maybe get some nerves…
Most of all Welcome to the away team and their fans, also heartily welcome to the EHF- delegate and referees!
A special greetings to former LUGI coach Ion Vargalui who has helped the both clubs immensely in these two games. Ion is also former Romanian national team player and coach. He’s the perfect bridge between Swedish and Romanian handball! It’s a real pleasure to work with this gentleman again! Tack Ion!
