The national women’s handball team coach of Romania, Florentin Pera, announced a batch of 18 players for the European Championship – EHF EURO 2022, which will take place between November 4-20, in Slovenia, North Macedonia and Montenegro.

Pera summoned five players each from Rapid and Gloria 2018 Bistrita-Năsăud, four from CSM Bucharest, two from SCM Râmnicu Vâlcea and one each from CSM Slatina and Minaur Baia Mare.

The batch will meet on October 24 and will enter the centralized training from Cheile Grădiştei until October 28.

The tricolors will then go to Hungary, where they will play two friendly games, with Hungary on October 29 and with Germany on November 2, in Tatabanya.

The departure for Skopje will be on November 3, and the first game of EURO 2022 is scheduled for November 5. Romania will play in Group C, alongside the strong teams of France, the Netherlands and North Macedonia.

The head coach of the national women’s handball team, Florentin Pera: “I believe in the potential of the summoned players and I want us to show up at the European Championship as a united team that fights in every match regardless of the opponent.

It is true that we faced a complicated situation in the formation of the team, considering that one of the mandatory conditions for participation in this year’s European Championship is that each player has the complete vaccination schedule (booster). Being conditioned by this rule, we requested a record that includes the eligibility of the players from the expanded group of 35. Unfortunately, a number of players do not meet this participation criterion and did not agree to be vaccinated, a decision that represents a right of each one separately, which is related to health and not to the sports part.

As such, in addition to Laslo, Bucur, Miticus, Zamfirescu with medical problems, other players are added to complete the list of unavailability. The initial situation was even more difficult, but an important part of the team accepted and understood the conditions imposed by the regulation, so we will line up a mix of experienced players and young players, five of them being debutants at a final tournament.

I am convinced that every player will give her best for the national team and we aim to fight to the last drop of energy for the supporters of the national team. GO ROMANIA!”
