"Based on the last few years, we may be a favorite against Spain, but we don't feel that way in the team," said 27-year-old Abbingh from NU Japan. "Our coach Manu also emphasized: you will not come to a World Cup final by chance. That applies to Spain and to us. Spain has played a lot of good matches so far. It is clear that everyone is keen to win this match , but we should not take too many risks. Spain has a very offensive cover and intercepts a lot of balls. We must not help them in the game by making mistakes. Our chances are really in the counterattack. " (2/2)

Handball players do not feel like a favorite for the World Cup final
The Dutch handball players can write history on Sunday by conquering the world title for the first time in history. Although the team has the best chances on paper, Lois Abbingh does not think that the Orange is the absolute favorite in Japan against Spain. The Netherlands finished on the last two World Cups on the podium (silver in 2015 and bronze in 2017) and also secured the honorary metal at the last two European championships (silver in 2016 and bronze in 2018). Spain, on the other hand, did not finish any of those editions on the podium and lost four of the last five encounters with the Netherlands. (1/2)
