WOMEN’S SPAIN

Team squad
 
Dani Lara: - We're going to try to improve the position obtained in Brazil in 2014, which is an ambitious aim. In that World Championship we were fifth after having won a half against teams as Hungary or Ukraine. We must continue progressing as a team. In 2014, Brazil and Norway were the only teams against whom we couldn't win a half. In 2015 we did it against Norway and defeated strong teams as Ukraine. 2016 is the year to win a set, at least, against every team we play against.
