Italy is coming in this European Championship only in the women’s category and will play the first game against the neighboring country, Croatia.
Italian team almost had the highest number of stolen balls at the last European Championship in 2015. Monika Pruenster was the best goalkeeper of the same competition. Also, she was captain of the team with longtime experience.
Anika Niederwieser was the best defensive player of World Championship in Brazil, in 2014. She plays handball in the hall except the beach handball.
Italy will play in group C with Croatia, Greece, Spain and Switzerland. Maybe the Italian team can surprise, but we will see everything at Jarun Lake in Zagreb.
