Macedonia faces France at the start of the European Handball Championship

The Macedonian handball team will play its first match of the European Championship on Friday at 18h, against European, World and Olympic champions France. The two teams met in the qualifiers, and France on twice, 27:25 in Skopje and 35:24 in Toulouse.

The Macedonian team has been in Krakow since Wednesday, is training for the competition and team members say that morale is high. "France is normally reserved in the first games, and needs some time to up its game. That might be to our benefit. We need to focus on our style of playing. Our team has proven we can play well against major competitors. Good defense can lead to a positive result for us", said Goce Georgievski, who plays in the French handball league and knows the opponent well.

Macedonia plays in an extremely difficult group, with France, Serbia and hosts Poland. Following the 18h match, there will be a ceremonial opening of the championship, followed by a sold out match between Poland and Serbia.cc/10:00
