Goluža didn’t invite Balić – Ivano to miss first tourmanent after 11 years!

Since EHF EURO 2002 and start of his NT career, the best handball player ever, Ivano Balić will miss one big Championship. Official reason of Croatia NT coach, Slavko Goluza is that he couldn’t find Balic in Madrid and that Ivano was unavailable for NT’s staff.

– He won’t find out this from newspapers. He is aware that he isn’t in good form. I need healthy players, no matter which name is. It could happen that for Spain I took only 15 players – said Goluža.
