Ivan Nikcevic before Alicante: “Spain is the biggest favorite”

Man who has the biggest knowledge about strentgh and weak side of Spanish NT in Serbian NT is Ivan Nikcevic, left wing of Valladolid:

– As host team, Spain is the biggest favorite to qualify for London. They done everything to organise this tournament and qualify for the Olympic Games. Spain will be without Alberto Entrerios and Garcia Parrondo, but they will be substituted with two younger, also quality players. The biggest quality of Spain is 5-1 defense. We have to be carefull to keep the ball and don’t receive easy goals – says Nikcevic and add:

– We have to play defense on the same level as at EHF EURO 2012 in Serbia.  We have to stop their counter attack. They don’t have respect to anyone even Serbia is silver from the last European championship. It wil be really difficult for us to win in full hall of home fans.

Poland and Algeria?

– Poland is unpredictable. They can beat, but also lose against much weaker rivals. I hope that they won’t have a day against us. My wish is to secure Olympic Games after two matches, but also, we have to take Algeria serious – said Nikcevic.
