Russian coach of the national team, Vladimir Maksimov gave a short prediction to journalist of Handball-Planet.com about World Championships in Sweden, after match of the Russian team in Belgrade, where they played against Serbia (33:37).
– France is the most strongest team, with no doubt. They showed that a lot of times in last a few years. Sweden waiting for a results for many years. They didn’t make anything big after an fantastic generation with Johansson. With a little luck, fans and also, if referees “push” them in some moments, it is possible for Swedish to find their way to the final. If I have to mention one more national team, I will say – Poland.
Russia didn’t qualified for WC 2011. Maksimov “Bears” lost from Romania last June.
