Hardly preparing: DHB team goes from WM
“We only spent one and a half days here. You realize that the players have just played in the Bundesliga, then they had their journey. Ideal is not in my view,” said the 62-year-old Islander on Tuesday in Kiel.
The DHB selection remains a little time to prepare for the play-off first leg against the Faroe Islands on Wednesday (18.15 pm / TV: Sport1). “But even if we only have two days preparation on this game, I think we’re well prepared in these games,” Gislason said.
The German team starts as a clear favorite in the duels, the second leg will take place on Saturday in Torshavn. The winner qualifies for the World Cup in early 2023 in Poland and Sweden. In addition to the higher quality of his team, Gislason also relies on the mood in Kiel, where he has worked as a club train for many years before the national coach job. “The anticipation is very big to finally get upstairs back in the hall,” he said. “Of course, I hope that the mood will be as good as I know you from here.”
