First list of Hispanics after the Games with eight novelties

Jordi Ribera, national coach of the Hispanics, has offered the list of players called up for a new activity of the National Team that will be held from November 1 to 7, and that will feature the dispute of two friendly matches against Romania in Avilés on November 4 and 6. ANDThe first of them will be held at 9:00 p.m. by Teledeporte, and the second at 7:00 p.m. via streaming on the YouTube channel of the Royal Spanish Handball Federation.

A call that is made up of a total of 17 men:

Central: Agustín Casado (Logroño La Rioja), Ian Tarrafeta (PAUC Handball)

Right side: Jorge Maqueda (Telekom Veszprém), Eduardo Gurbindo (Dinamo Bucuresti)

Pivot: Adriá Figueras (Chartres Métropole Handball), Gideón Guardiola (TBV Lemgo Lippe), Rubén Marchán (HBC Nantes)

Eight news from Tokyo

Carrying out a first analysis on the list, several news regarding the Tokyo Olympic Games, the last time we saw Hispanics in action, stand out: specifically 8 players will be those who enter this activity and who did not achieve bronze in the Olympic event, which represents practically half of this call.

Almost all of them, yes, they already know what it is to go to the call of the Spanish team on some occasion. Chema Marquez It was the first of them, debuting with Jordi Ribera in June 2017; months later, in October 2017, I would Sergey Hernandez, which already has two bronze medals with Spain -Mediterranean Games Tarragona 2018 and Egypt World Championship 2021-. Three more would be released in November 2020, such as Ander Izquierdo, Ian Tarrafeta and Rubén Marchán -the latter also bronze in Egypt-; while Agustín Casado it would be the last in March against Slovakia.

The two main novelties, therefore, arrive at the extremes with Gonzalo Pérez and Daniel Fernández, both international with the Hispanics in lower categories and that now they will be released under the command of Jordi Ribera in the absolute. The ABANCA left-hander Ademar León, yes, already participated with the Spanish team in January with the Moscow International Tournament. Gonzalo is precisely one of the great cannoneers of the Sacyr ASOBAL League, scoring 217 goals last season -second in the ranking- and 56 so far this season, placing himself as the top scorer in the category. For his part, at the age of 20, after training at the Barça youth academy and standing out at the Morrazo Cangas Frigoríficos, Daniel receives this great opportunity thanks to his outstanding performances day after day with the Galician team.

Jordi Ribera: “They will be two important games in preparation for the European Championship”

The national coach Jordi Ribera analyzes first-hand this first call for Hispanics after the Olympic Games, differentiating between “an obvious part which is the preparation for the European Championship, There are just over two months left and we will face a very demanding competition; and another part of introduction of young people. In this way, we mix experienced players with others who have already been in an activity but are now coming to face a more important test for future activities. “

On the double friendly against Romania, Ribera points out that “there will be two important games in preparation for the European Championship, complemented by several sessions with the ball that we will carry out throughout the week; The objective, in addition to continuing with the approach towards that official appointment, is to combine the team as much as possible, generating automatisms within those that are already being carried out to configure a more competitive group possible for January “.

Finally, the Spanish coach talks about Daniel Fernández, debutant and youngest player among the 17 Hispanics: “His performance is being very high in Cangas, last year perhaps it was a surprise for everyone, but it maintains that continuity and that is why we give it this opportunity; with this we also send a message to all the boys that regardless of age and where they are, if they work hard, they can make it to the national team. “
