The Spanish badminton team stayed one step away from qualifying for the final phase of the European Mixed Team Championship, as it had a match point that gave it the ticket for the appointment that will face the eight best nations of the continent of the February 16-20, 2021 in Vantaa, Finland.

Despite having the last minute withdrawal of Carolina Marín, the team led by Ernesto García had a brilliant performance in Caldas de Rainha, where they surpassed with authority Ukraine and Latvia (5-0) and had only yielded one point to Portugal (4-1) before the decisive match against Scotland (2-3).

García explains that “we ended very happy despite the result and I want to congratulate the athletes and not only for how well they have competed. They have shone in each of the meetings and have transmitted a lot of security. But also, the second and most important thing has been the team atmosphere that has existed during all the days. It is a very important aspect that in other times I have missed and it has been one of the points to value “.

In sports, “it is a success with a bitter taste of the final result, because we had a meeting point to play the final phase … and winning a very tough team like Scotland, which has four very complicated points, with players consolidated in the three doubles and the female “.

In any case, the “bitter taste” that the result leaves does not tarnish the promising future of Spanish badminton, as the national coach highlights: “It is a pity not to be in the final phase of the European Championship because the athletes deserved it, but we draw very positive “.
