Austria wrote one of the best chapter of handball history by qualifing for World Championship 2015 in Qatar. Icelander on Austrian bench, Patrekur Johannesson was happy after tough battle with Norway 28:28 (first match 30:28):
– I am so proud of what the boys have done here. It was a tough match, Norway has demanded everything from us, but what this team has done with fighting spirit, including support team is great.
Experienced goalkeeper Nikola Marinovic, was one of the heroes, and that wasn’t the first time for him…
– This is madness I’m proud of the guys and I hope that the team will be again the same at the World Championship.
Legendary captain, Viktor Szilagyi will lead his team once again on the big stage…
– If you look at that list of fantastic teams who couldn’t win the tickets for Qatar and you know that we are for the fourth time in five years there, then that is just incredible. I think we all need a few days to realize that.
