ALWAYS THERE

Apart from the Olympic tournament, which has a 12-team limit, the Macedonian team has not missed a major event since 2012. This demonstrates the consistent ability of the Macedonians to negotiate the qualifying rounds. In France, they will participate in their fifth World Championship, and third in a row. The Chambéry coach, Croatian Ivica Obrvan, resigned after Euro 2016 (when the team finished in 11th place) and his fellow Croatian, Lino Cervar, took over the management of the team’s destiny. His great experience from sitting alongside RK Metalurg on the Skopje bench since 2009 should benefit the Macedonian team. Notably, he led Croatia to the Olympic title in 2004. An impressive scorecard…

DID YOU KNOW?

To qualify for their third consecutive World Championship, Macedonia were made to sweat hard: beaten 22-28 by the Czech Republic in playoffs last June, their training, led by Kiril Lazarov managed to turn back the tide in extremis in the return match in Skopje (34-27), thanks in particular to 11 goals by the Rhein-Neckar winger, Dejan Manaskov.


COACH: Lino CERVAR (Croatia)
