First, we deservedly misplaced within the quarter-finals – we had our possibilities however did not in the long run. The German crew had an important begin to this sport in opposition to France. Focused, dedicated, motivated – the French have proven impressively that the DHB choice could be anticipated as we speak. Andreas Wolff additional bolstered a selflessly tackling midfield with a really sturdy particular person efficiency.

However, we received beginning place with 4 objectives in two minutes. But earlier than the break we have been on par with the document world champion. After begin to the second half, we allowed ourselves to be run over mercilessly. At this stage, the bodily benefit was clear to us. My fears within the Norway sport have been additionally confirmed: In the tip, we lacked psychological alertness.

Unfortunately, Paul Drucks could not actually assist due to his bronchitis, we might have used him in assault as a result of to be sincere, we have been a bit overwhelmed on the again. The seven-six video games, which haven’t but been mastered, have been makes an attempt to provide a remaining push. But, on the similar time, it was turned off.

France is totally world class in all components of the crew. I don’t wish to speak concerning the lack of width as a decisive issue. This was a particular function of the present Olympic champion. It broke us within the final quarter of an hour. It needs to be famous: The 4 finest groups of the event are additionally within the semi-finals.

We want the final two video games

Denmark had a simple time in opposition to Hungary, Sweden had a convincing choice in opposition to Egypt. Spain and Norway produced an outstanding handball thriller, with the Scandinavians messing up a semi-final they thought was protected with a pointless again cross late in regulation.

We must shake ourselves up now. Germany will then play in opposition to Egypt on Friday. We want to complete fifth if attainable, however we nonetheless want two extra wins for that. First the African champions, then Hungary or once more the Norwegians – it will likely be an actual problem. But we want these video games to provide us begin to qualify for the European Championships and the Olympics subsequent January on residence soil.
