Bronze in handball: This generation could only leave on the podium

What a pleasure to say goodbye like this. In the last second on a handball track, Raúl Entrerrios marked a goal, his last goal of him, and confirmed a medal, the last medal of him. What a pleasure to say goodbye like this.

With the defeat you learn, assure the cheermen, but what were going to learn some gentlemen than at 36, at 37, at 38 and even the 40s had already won almost everything. With the defeat, it is reclaimed, it dissulates or returned and what this Spain did after falling into the semifinals of the Tokyo Games was returning. Custom. Many, Raul himself, Julen Aginagalde, Dani Sarmiento, Gideon Guardiola, would not have been here if they had not run out of playing Rio 2016 games; Of that failure, these forces, that last goal. They returned to return and when they go back, they can go quietly. This Thursday the selection hung up the fourth Olympic bronze in its history and, with it around the neck, said goodbye the best generation of history, that which won a World and Two Europeans.

Earrings embraced with all his companions after the time he finished the game; One by one, hugs, kisses, many kisses. Handball is over for him, 20 later he will no longer play, as others will not do it. Therefore, there was excitement for victory, yes, but also a pity for the time it happened.

In fact, those two sensations marked the party. That the farewell was sweet was the main motivation to win and, at the same time, ended up being the main obstacle. There were moments of an excess of emotion as when, in the first minutes, Ángel Fernández gave out a goal in counterattack and this one, who did not expect it, failed it. Julen AginaGalde, who had barely played throughout the championship, appeared as a starter in the first minutes and, although he was successful, the presence of him despired the team.

In the end, Spain, after three goals down (5-2, min. 7), discovered that there was no tribute game and changed. With more intensity in defense and a lot of speed, the whole that contains the extreme Aleix Gómez, reached an advantage of an advantage of three as many (14-17, min. 25) and returned to think about the future; He failed again.

Waiting for the end, the maintenance of Entrees, the medal delivery ceremony, dinner and the return home, Spain relaxed and Egypt, which never relaxes, took advantage of it. With his aggressiveness and arms of Ahmed Elahmar or Mohamed Shabib, he was hooked to the fight for medals with a sustained, continuous draw, which only broke at the end with a goal by Alex Dujshebaev, who else.
