In the second half, the Spanish team put one more gearWith the fourth victory, you will still have to see Austria and Croatia Photo: Reuters The Spanish men’s handball team this Thursday added their fourth victory, and the first in the second phase, in the European Championship that is being played in Austria, Norway and Sweden, after imposing much forceful 31-25 on the Republic CzechIn this way, the current champion, although she did not play her best match of the championship, achieved her first two important points in the ‘Main Round’ which gives access to the medals after fulfilling the forecasts before an opponent she almost always dominated and the one who finished developing in the second half when he escaped with an already insurmountable difference.Spain had a hard time breaking the game and did not get it until the final quarter of an hour. In the first part, the Czechs, thanks to the great work in the goal of Mrkva (9 stops, including two seven meters), were able to recover from the first initial blow (7-4, min. 12).The Central European team, which suffered from the good work of Julen Aguinagalde in the pivot zone, grabbed the actions of his goalkeeper to match things (7-7). However, this balance seemed only real on the scoreboard because the Central European team did not succeed in disarming the 6-0 of the ‘Hispanics’ and survived mainly due to the lack of success of the current champion. Thus, the defense and appearance of Gonzalo Pérez de Vargas caused the Spaniards to re-open a gap that reached their maximum number of five goals (14-9) just before the break and after the Czechs only scored two goals since the tie seven and have them remain unmarked for the last seven minutes.Final hit after the last approachIn the resumption the crash script did not change much, although those of Jan Filip and Daniel Kubes recovered some offensive success, although it was not reflected much on the scoreboard because Spain, with good minutes of Alex Dusjhebaev, also scored with some ease to expand even at seven goals the rent (19-12, min. 37).The descent of success in the goal of Mrkva was compensated by the side Kasparek and the central Zdrahala as the best weapons of the Czechs, who did not miss another stop in attack of those of Ribera to sign a 1-5 of partial and recover options ( 20-17, min. 43).The Czech Republic did not last long because it did not survive a series of exclusions and the double world champion again took a good lead (23-17, min. 45). The attacks without goalkeeper were not the solution either and they received as punishment fast goals of the Spaniards who finished the game (29-19, min.53) to be able to live relaxed the final stretch. This Saturday (6:15 pm), the ‘Hispanics’ will face each other in a key game against host Austria.DATA SHEET–OUTCOME: SPAIN, 31 – CZECH REPUBLIC, 25 (14-9, at rest).–SPAIN: Pérez de Vargas (1), Corrales (p); Maqueda (3), Fernández (5), Entrerríos (1), A.
