Yesterday the Hispanics had the day off, the first day without training or match since they are in Cairo. Jordi Ribera must have thought that his men deserved a break after so many finals in a row, because Uruguay, this afternoon in the afternoon (15:30, TDP), It does not appear to be a rival that could disturb Hispanics. In his first World Cup, the history of crashes against Spain begins.
Ribera made a politically correct analysis of the rival, but Maxi Cancio, one of its stars, an Asturian of Uruguayan descent is more sincere: “We are enjoying our first World Cup, facing the stars of this sport. Competing against the teams that touch us is almost impossible. In Uruguay there are barely 600 licenses, and although four of us are active in Spain (Chaparro, Morandeira and Rostagno are the others), only Gabi Chaparro (Novás) is a professional. I do not anymore. I have returned home (Oviedo) for my daughters, and now I live on savings ”. Maxi Cancio (36) has gone through Asobal, and also through the lower national teams: “My father is Asturian, and my Uruguayan mother is the daughter of Galicians.”
Yesterday Cancio, left-handed side of the South American team, said that in his selection “What is proposed is not to wrinkle against the giants that come every game, improve, gain experience, and think about stopping this, avoid that, score a goal, and see if you can change the shirt with one of those rivals, because thinking about winning is impossible ”. A Máximo, “if that is the case”, would like to exchange it “with Gideon Guardiola” because they coincided in the interior categories “like with Joan Cañellas”, or “with Raúl Entrerríos, who is Asturian”.
Time for everyone. Jordi Ribera said yesterday that it is a good day “for everyone to play”, with which Goñi and Hernández could enter the call-up before the clash against Hungary, the new final that comes to the National Team to be in the quarterfinals.
Today’s Hungary-Poland will dictate the importance of the match between the Spanish and the Hungarians on Monday. If the Poles beat the Hungarians today, the Hispanics (taking the victory against Uruguay for granted), would have a life-death clash with the Magyars on Monday, because Poland would be faced with real and mathematical options to eliminate Spain or Hungary.
Of course, Germany will not be in the quarterfinals … unless they win their next two games, and lose the two remaining for the Spanish and the Poles, which could be if Uruguay were stronger, but Germany (43-14) and Hungary (44-18) almost tripled them in the result, and Hungary almost doubled (30-16).
