The hockey players of Corona Brașov, were again a decisive part of the Romania national team

As we have already become accustomed to, the hockey players of Corona Brasov are decisive in the jersey of the national team of Romania.

For the pre-Olympic tournament in the United Kingdom, the Romanian team coach (and coach of the Corona Brașov team), Julius Penzes, selected a number of 9 “wolves”: goalkeeper Patrik Polc and Zoltan Toke, defender Pavlo Borysenko and forwards: Roberto Gliga (captain of the national team) , Daniel Trancă, Zsombor Molnar, Peter Balazs, Gergo Biro, Mircea Constantin.

Last but not least, the staff of the national team was completed with the lot manager (and vice president of the FRHG) Emilian Cernica, Alexandra Sampetru on the part of PR Social Media and physiotherapist Fabian Popa.

Corona Brașov players excelled at this tournament, being vital to Romania’s good game.

The goalkeepers paid off well, Patrik Polc defended in the games against Great Britain and Hungary, finishing the tournament with a very good percentage (90.91%) and Zoltan Toke was the winner in the last game, the victory against Estonia.

Defender Pavlo Borysenko was also one of the basic players, managing a pass to the 2-2 goal of the game against Hungary but also a goal in the victory against Estonia.

Forward Daniel Trancă became the goalscorer of the group, with 5 goals in the 3 games (one goal against Great Britain and Hungary and 3 goals against Estonia).

Roberto Gliga – the capitain of the team was, as usual, the leader that the national team needs and that kept the team united and motivated throughout the tournament. Moreover, Roberto grew in the spirit of the national team of Romania, his father, Marius Gliga, representing Romania with great success for 13 years (many years being the captain of the team) and being 8 years in the “staff” of the national team as second coach, head coach or team manager.

Now Roberto is following in the footsteps of his father, at 26 years old being in the 9th year in the jersey of the national team of Romania and for 4 years the captain of this team.

Striker Peter Balazs scored two goals: in the game against Great Britain and in the game against Estonia (both for his teammate Daniel Trancă).

And Zsombor Molnar contributed with two goals (and also Daniel Trancă’s goals): in the game against Hungary and against Estonia.

The striker Mircea Constantin scored a goal, in the game against Estonia.

After the tournament, coach Julius Penzes and captain Roberto Gliga said:

Julius Penzes:
