The race to the Women's EHF EURO 2024 continues this week with round 3 of the qualifiers. The round opened on Wednesday with nine qualifers and two EHF EURO Cup matches, which saw Denmark become the first to book a place at the final tournament in Austria, Hungary, and Switzerland through the qualifiers.

On Thursday, another seven qualifiers take place, including the Highlight Match Serbia vs Montenegro on at 18:00 CET.

It was a really good second half, but in the beginning we played lightly in defence. In the second half it was a good, strong defence and we need to repeat that, as well as have more focus in key moments.

We had a good opening of the game. We didn't allow their two key players, Janjusevic and Jovovic, to play how they usually play. In the second half they showed what they can do, but we knew that we had to play until the end. This is big two points for us. The next match in Podgorica will be harder, but we will be ready. The atmosphere will be nice. We can't wait.

We didn't have the opportunity to play in Poland with full stands for a long time, so from the morning we kept repeating to ourselves that we had to put on a good show and enjoy the match together with the fans. We will go to Denmark for the rematch with our heads held high. We will analyse today's match. It will probably be even more difficult away, but we will try to repel their attack.

We are extremely happy to take our first ever victory in the second qualification phase. We were the favourites, but we did not expect to win that clearly. We ran Luxembourg over, mainly after the break, when they got tired. This was a first step, but we still have a long road ahead of us.
Jana Mittún
Centre back, Faroe Islands
We haven’t met in the national team since the end of the World Championship. It is good to be together again. Today part of our tactics was to run deeply behind the Swiss defence as many times as we could, and our teammates succeeded to give us passes, so the wing and line players had many opportunities. I am happy about it and it was very nice before the Olympic Qualification Tournament.
