It looks like Spain has bought a subscription to the European Championship final. The Iberians have qualified for the final for the fourth time in a row – they have won their last two matches. This time, Sweden is the contender they defeated in the preliminary round by 32:28. It’s more compact in the final. No exit can be envisaged until the last minute.
At the end of the sixty minutes, Sweden is awarded a seven-meter throw – with a score of 26:26! The latest drama reaches its climax. One question remains: Will Niklas Ekberg (33) keep his nerves with the European title? But something like that. The ball flies into the net and the Swedes hug each other. The Scandinavians defeated the more experienced Spaniards, with eleven players over the age of thirty.
This also shows that no player from the Swiss Handball League will be able to lift the EM Cup. Juan Canelas (35), Spaniard contracted to Cadeten Schaffhausen, jogs off the field with his head drooped. The Swedes won’t care. They took their fifth European Championship title and thus expanded their status as record winners.
Exciting game for bronze medal
A thriller that also takes place in a third-place duel. Denmark vs France or world champions vs Olympic champions. The game remains very competitive throughout the entire season. No team can break – overtime.
The Danes are closing the barricades there. They only conceded three goals in ten minutes. Goalkeeper Niklas Landen (33) leaves the opponent’s offensive ranks in despair. In the foreground, Jacob Holm (26) adds two more goals to his tally of ten goals and becomes the match’s top scorer. In the end, Denmark defeated 35:32 and took the bronze medal at the European Handball Championship.
