Belarus going for a battle of points

Head coach of the Belarussian National Team Iouri Chevtsov has commented on the draw of the 27th IHF Men's World Championship in Egypt.

"We have a very interesting group. I'm not ready to evaluate only the national team of Korea. I last saw this team on the 2019 World Championship in Germany,: He said.

Belarus was drawn in group H together with Russia, Slovenia and South Korea.

" It's clear that in this contest all opponents have a chance not only to achieve the main round, but also to play successfully," he added.

" I don't see a clear favorite in our group.

However, the teams have different playing styles. The Russians are similar to us. The Slovenian team has interesting distinctive features. And the Koreans will surely be unlike anyone else.

"But the first priority of the teams is not to be the last in the group. And it's clear that there will immediately be a battle for the points that will be needed in the main round". Chevtsov concluded
