— I am pleased with the result and the way the team played, especially in defense. Pre-season meeting in Slovenia came to an end, we have fulfilled all we had planned. The main part of the work on the physical training we finished. Now we'll have more game practice and participate in two tournaments. On the way to Bosnia and Herzegovina Petteri Koponen will join us after playing for national team of Finland. Of course, it will not be easy for him, but he is a smart player. Hopefully, Petteri will be quickly pulled into our training process. We'll see in what physical condition he comes, then we'll decide how we can use him in the nearest tournament.
