Centre back and captain of the Spanish team, Raul Entrerrios won’t play Spain’s first game in the 2017 IHF Men’s Handball World Championship, this Thursday evening against Iceland in Metz (20:45 CET).

Out with a groin injury, the FC Barcelona player wasn’t able to play the last two test matches for the Spanish team. Entrerrios is not included in the roster of 16 players unveiled by the Spanish Federation, but could join the team during the tournament. “We decided to wait until he is able to take part in a regular training session,” stated head coach Jordi Ribera.
