First a bit of anecdote: I’ve acquired many messages on WhatsApp and SMS from buddies and a few who describe themselves as buddies asking why Andreas Wolff will not be in objective. Tenor: “What are we doing?”

Let me say one factor: it was the suitable resolution. Wolff cannot begin each sport. If Andi comes off the bench in a wholesome combat in troublesome conditions, he additionally needs to be at his greatest. I believe it is good that Birlech is being rewarded for his performances, however Wolff is being rested for therefore lengthy that we get one thing.

I believe our Foxes captain, the ailing Paul Drucks, missed each nook towards Norway. Especially in protection, but in addition along with his dynamic one-on-one play, he may assist the German group.

In the sport itself, I noticed issues in our protection to counter the physicality of gamers like Sander Sagosen or Magnus Rohde. So we needed to shortly change the goalkeeper and alter the objective.

We needed to break the rhythm, however – and it should be stated – the Norwegians have been solely two targets higher than the DHB choice on this sport. But that is why I’m so impressed by the keenness of our group, we’re on the verge of altering the sport.

Knorr’s neighbors do not come near leveling up

In the primary half we have been too dependent on Juri Knorr, who managed the sport intelligently however above all saved us within the sport along with his targets. In the second spherical – I hope I’m unsuitable – I lacked a bit of vibrancy. We additionally misplaced our low cost. Norwegian goalkeeper Torbjorn Bergerud completed with 55 p.c, however the Germans’ angle performed into his palms.

It goes with out saying that Knorr can not carry the sport on his shoulders for 60 minutes. Unfortunately, many of his companions didn’t write what was anticipated of them.

Now towards France. A sport towards one of the highest favorites will certainly be an enormous problem for our boys. I hope for the return of aid, the excellent Wolff, a wholesome Drucks and the little miracle of handball.

Bob Hanning (54) led Führze Berlin from the second division to the Champions League, turned the DHB round in eight years as vp and wrote the Spiegel bestseller (Hanning. Macht. Handball.). In his column, he analyzes what is going on within the nationwide group and the Bundesliga.
