National coach Emmanuel Mayonnade of the Dutch handball players beamed with pride after the victory over Hungary, which prevented the world champion from being eliminated at the European Championships in Denmark. “This team never gives up and that’s fantastic. I am so proud. I finally saw how the Dutch team played the way they can play, ”said the Frenchman after the game.
“Danick Snelder and Angela Malestein prepared us very well for this game. You know Hungarian handball and the players. They trained while they were watching videos, ”said Mayonnade, who led Orange handball players to the world championship a year ago. “We came back from three or four goals behind. The team has shown its true level, that’s how we should play handball. It was good defensively and good offensively. “
