Always look forward to the handball tournies. Červar as usual is continuing to bring in fresh faces and copping the usual criticism along the way. He's the last coach to bring us gold (15 years ago!) but his habit of cutting proven veterans is a bit annoying. His 28-man preliminary squad is loaded with young talent from the domestic league. All up I think there are 16 guys who have never played a major tourney or were just squad players.
Our group games are against Montenegro, Serbia and Belarus.
And waterpolo Euros I think is coming up. The waterpolo team came to Sydney last week or so and played 3 test matches vs Australia. We won all 3 games. Got to see the players at the Croatian Club. Huge mofos they are.
Not totally familiar with the handball teams and the up and comers. From that team it seems like Duvnjak, Horvat, Cindric, Karacic, Stepancic, Musa are our most experienced players. Maybe I'm missing some players. What happened to Cupic and Strlek? Those two were always beasts on the wing. Horvat is also great but is getting old.
