The FC Barcelona of handball, a worldwide collection of stars of this sport, has found the heir to this crown in Pablo Urdangarín, the son of the Infanta Cristina de Borbón and Iñaki Urdangarín, who has been one of the main attractions of the match played this Saturday at the Palacio de los Deportes de Huesca, and in which the Catalans beat Bada 25-40. The young 21-year-old player has been one of the most followed by fans and, after the match, several from the stands have asked him to come closer to take a selfie. Willingly, Urdangarín has agreed to be photographed with them before returning to the locker room with his teammates.
The team from Huesca will always be special for the right winger, as they made their debut this season with the first team when Bada visited the Palau Blaugrana on October 23. He also did it with the presence of his parents in the stands and signed a good letter of introduction: three goals in five pitches. A statistic that, already with some experience behind him in his debut season with the first team, has improved this Saturday. He has scored five goals in six attempts (83.3% accuracy), which has made him the third best scorer of the game behind his teammates Janc and Dika Mem.
As soon as he stepped onto the court he scored his first goal and positioned as a released right winger, in the second half he contributed to making the distance between Bada Huesca and Barcelona insurmountable. Pablo Urdangarín already has 22 goals in the Asobal League and has also made his debut this season in the Champions League, so the progression of the second son of the infanta Cristina and Iñaki Urdangarín he doesn’t seem to have limits, also advised in the azulgrana dressing room by a very experienced squad at the highest level.
