“In the national team there is a very good atmosphere and that is a motivation to come and disconnect”


The power forward of the Spanish team Joel Parra made it clear that he is “with the same illusion” of being with the national team when he was there for the first time and recognized that one of the keys to wanting to “come and disconnect” is the “very good atmosphere” that is lived.

New players are coming, but I am very happy to be here and wanting to compete,” Parra told the media in statements provided by the FEB after the match. start of the concentration in Alicante for the matches against Iceland and Italy.

The Catalan knows that there should not be relaxations despite the fact that they are already classified for the World Cup. “I think that just coming here has to make us ambitious and want to win. We have to go to both games with the same desire and enthusiasm and compete to the fullest because we are representing Spain and a shirt, which is the first of all “, he warned.

The Joventut player insisted that playing with the national team is a responsibility. “We are classified, but we want to continue competing and improving as a group, and that happens by trying to win these two games,” he warned.

“This has been the first day, there are many of us who know each other from the last ‘windows’, but four new players are also coming and we have to try to integrate them. Every time you come here there is a great atmosphere and that is another motivation to come and disconnect a bit to be with friends and not just with colleagues”, added Parra about this concentration where Alberto Díaz, champion of the Copa del Rey with Unicaja, has not yet arrived. “We are very happy for them, they have deserved it because they have had a spectacular Cup. I hope they pay for a ‘food’ or something,” he said with a smile.
