HERNING (Dagbladet): Thank you for the efforts, håndballgutta!
Norway lost the world cup final against Denmark in front of 15 000 spectators. Thus, it was unfortunately a repeat of the finals two years ago, that time against France. The Norwegian team heading home with a new world cup silver after 20 days of heroic effort.
This was Denmark's first world cup gold in a håndballmesterskap ever, and it at home.
A naturally-disappointed Christian Berge met with the press after the match.
- It is always sad to lose håndballkamper, but Denmark was much better than us. We look tired out and had trouble along the way. Guys should be allowed to be a little disappointed now.
I am proud of the accomplishments up to that here. We could have always done something different, but today Denmark is really good, " concludes Berge.- Blytungt
the Danes have been fantastic in this year's championship, and Norway knew that they had to play their life's battle to have a chance at the gold.
the Disappointment was, however, great when Denmark showed complete klasseforskjell.
Then there was about a quarter of an hour left of the match, took the Christian to Save the time out and the message was simple.
- Keep out!
Norway simply had big problems to keep up through the whole match. Viasats commentators, Daniel Høglund and Kristian Kjelling, thought it had to be a miracle if Norway would be able to turn the tide of battle after the break. Had Denmark been given a hatch on the seven goals.
The Norwegian profiles struggled to get the ball behind the Danish Niklas Landin, who might have stood out as energy best goalkeeper. Mikkel Hansen showed the muscles, and was at times very difficult to stop.
- Playhouse, reported the Danish Extra Blade along the way in the fight.
Denmark had a treffprosent at closer to 70 per cent, while the Uk was down to 45 per cent. Rod out for Norway, that is.
- It is simply blytungt. We are in the process of being completely outclassed by Denmark, says Høglund.- Totally insane! Completely overrun
throttle in any way was thus, both on the pitch and the stands as the referee blew time the fight in Herning. Norway got on the other hand the worst possible start to the match when Danish Mikkel Hansen was awarded the free throws in the first minute. The hosts continued to keep the throttle in any way on the top, and rolled up with several praktangrep. Norway was at times completely overrun in the first place.
the Teams went to the break with the score 11-18 to Denmark in a game where Norway had to close again behind. The danes showed the world-class in angrepsspillet. Viasats commentators were at times shocked at how good it was.
the Teams went to the break with the score 11-18 to Denmark.
