Against Brazil he scored the tying goal, and against Poland in addition to the goals he took out the exclusion that partly alleviated the problems of Spain in the final stretch. Raúl Entrerríos, about to turn 40, acts as captain with the ascendancy in the group and with his game. Today he will have to lend an important hand to win against Tunisia, with good memories, because they won the first World Cup in Spain (2005) in that country, with 33-30 in the semifinals against the hosts.
By age, Raúl is the eighth oldest in the World Cup, although apart from the goalkeepers only Carou (Argentina), Lazarov (Macedonia) and Petersson (Iceland) are slightly older. He has played all kinds of battles, and is the one who pulls the group in difficult moments: “After Sunday’s victory, the match against Tunisia is another final against a very physical opponent that will complicate us from the start.”
It’s a final “because we have to get a point to achieve the mathematical classification. I see the team well, and it knows how to close ranks in difficult moments. It is evident that the fluidity that the Selection had in the European is lacking, but the circumstances are very different“, says the coach Jordi Rivera.
For Jorge Maqueda It is possible that “after achieving the first victory on Sunday the team will let go”, and for today “the key will be to give continuity to the offensive game.” “If we go one against one and we let them constantly make fouls we will have it very difficult “warned the Veszprem side from Toledo.
The accounts are clear: winning or tied, to the second phase; a defeat by two goals or more if Brazil and Poland draw, would leave Spain in fourth place, to the President’s Cup, against Chile, Morocco, Korea and Austria. But in what Figueras thinks “it is in the victory and to happen with three points”, and warns that it will not be easy “against a selection as physical as the one of Tunisia”, of which it emphasizes the scorers “Mosbah Sanai and central Mohamed Darmoul”. He also makes self-criticism by pointing out that “you have to maintain the level of defense, to run, and then improve efficiency at the time of definition.”
