Coach: Sakib Malkočević

"The tournament in Azerbaijan was a great experience. We were nervous and didn’t really express ourselves in the first match and then we had to play half the game against Germany with one player less. But we deserved our first-ever victory in the last match and I told my players that they’d shown they deserve to play at this level and that the experience would be useful for the rest of their careers."
