What after the match against Norway last Thursday looked like a new bedrøvelig Golden League for the Danish national team was changed to a less successful after this weekend's matches against France and Romania.
the national Coach Klavs Bruun Jørgensen feared in advance to run into a major ass against both Norway and France. Now that was smacking against the norwegians, where the Danish women from the battle's opening looked like dead fish between the eyes.
On the other hand, a completely different expression in opgørene against France and Romania.
the Victory over the French European and world Champions on Saturday was a minor sensation.
Nedsablingen of Romania in Sunday's early match at the Golden League event showed that there is actually a large width in the Danish squad. The term was in place, and regardless of who was on the pitch, was the energy and the cool overview preserved.
Against Romania, there were several things to be happy about. Klavs Bruun Jørgensen has so far struggled to find space for Louise Burgaard on the national team. There are many who have wondered.
But because of injuries and had he could not come without about Burgaard to this edition of the Golden League. Against the romanians got the left-handed Burgaard shown, that there is absolutely no reason to keep her out in the cold.
She has great qualities in krydsspillet, and when she comes in running to its terminations, she is very hard to cover up. In Sunday's match in the French smashed the she more balls into the back of the otherwise excellent Romanian keeper.
the Tournament in France also showed that the Line Haugsted is recapturing its former strength. She is one of our best defenders, and the battle for the battle in the Golden League, she took the a greater and greater responsibility.
Defensively comes Haugsted in the way of a lot. She is excellent to fish balls. Against Romania was only allowed to show his offensive qualities, and she slid fine in the game and scored themselves a series of nice dimensions.
With the good forsvarspil, which is largely due to the Line Haugsteds efforts, there was also time in the Danish kontramaskine. Great to see how both first - and andenbølgen worked.
A major reason for the Danish performance on Saturday and Sunday, also, that the technical errors were kept to a very low level. At the european championships in France in december made the Danish women 14-15 technical errors in several of the matches. Against Romania, the number was kept down to five.
In Sunday's match was the Danish goal on the switch guarded by the two young talents Amalie Milling from Copenhagen Handball and Anna Kristensen from Skanderborg.
Anna Kristensen got the whole second half, and with a save percentage of 50 was she was a major reason for that pauseresultatet on knebne 15-13 was amended to a butchery of the romanians.
36-23 tells of a real humiliation of a Romanian team that admittedly lacked a part of their supporting players. It belongs to the story, but it should also be mentioned that Denmark in the entire second half played with the b-chain.
