At the end, Hungary won by 8 goals, won Group A and plays against Slovenia in the eight-finals, while Norway meets with Iceland.

Golovin Vlagyimir head coach, Hungary: – For sixty minutes we could play what we planned. Although we were a bit tired in the second half, we wanted to slow down the Norwegians but we slowed down ourselves. But the advantage that we managed to achieve in the first half, we could keep it till the end. When the game was a bit bumpy, there came one-one player who finished our attacks well. We did not calculate regarding the eight-finals, we watch and then analyze the Slovenian game, and we are preparing for it, and on Tuesday we go to the eight-finals.

Suba Sára: – At the beginning of the match we managed to pick up the rhythm. Our defense was very stable, so we were able to get on in the attacks as well. The audience had a great impact on our game, and practically pushed us into victory.

Háfra Noémi: – We expected a very difficult game, we thought we were playing a decisive match with Norway, but it was a pleasure game in the end. We enjoyed the whole match. We have been corrected our mistakes. We are preparing for the match against Slovenia tomorrow, which will not be an easy game. Thanks to the audience for the support, we did not think that so many fans came here to see us today.
