In the history it had to come. If the German and French handball players will meet in the big tournaments, drama and late goals almost guaranteed. In the Olympic semi-finals of Rio 2016, the German out of conceded at the very last second, the decisive goal and flew in the world Cup group match in Berlin nearly two weeks ago, chased Timothey N'guessan the Ball and with the final siren to 25:25-end to the grid and also on Sunday, the French had the better end for themselves.
In the so-called "small final" Nikola Karabatic made on the very last push for the decision and brought the German Team the Chance of the world Cup with a bronze medal finish. With 25:26 (13:9) had to give the team of national coach Christian Prokop struck. "It was a lot of fun to play with this team and these Fans, this world Cup," said the national coach. "We wanted to decide the game for us," he added after two and a half tournament weeks and a month on courses, in training halls, buses, trains and airplanes. "It hurts now, of course, correct."
Not 48 hours, after bitter semi-final defeat against Norway in Hamburg, the Germans were allowed to ride for the last home game is The hall in the Danish city of Herning was before the final between Denmark and Norway (see adjacent Text) in any case, firmly in German hands. Many supporters had made the 400-km long trip from the last venue Hamburg to Jutland, and your Tickets not be profitably sold. You should see the second defeat of your team, now in its tenth championship game.
as clear as the acoustic Overweight the ratio were not irregularities on the plate. The French, the four of the last five world Cup reached the Finals, and two of them had won, the thing very seriously, demonstrated their starting lineup: In the first Seven again her exceptional talent Karabatic. So far the players had come to a sensationally fast auskurierten surgery on the big toe, almost without exception, of the Bank.
A loss of the ball just before the end led to the winning goal of Karabatic
It took no two minutes, as Karabatic flew for the first Time across the air and landed hard on the floor of the facts: defensive specialist Hendrik Pekeler had accepted and welcomed Karabatic in the usual friendly manner. The German Defensive – you stand much better and more compact than against Norway. In addition, the Team of national coach Christian Prokop also had a reliable goalkeeper performance: Andreas Wolff bought the French three of the first four litters and confirmed this level in the further course.
the Front of Uwe gensheimer showed his class once more; the captain met the intermediate 4:2 – the first Two-goal lead this afternoon. The French retaliated under the friendly Use of the opponent: the variant with the seventh field players worked on the German side, again only to a very limited extent. Four of the nine goals in half one, were flown to the orphaned German goal. The German at the break, led by 13:9, was thanks largely to goalkeeper Wolff, whose rate of holding the balls lay after 30 minutes at about 50 percent.
After the break, it took all of eight minutes, until the hard-earned Four-goal was padding exhausted: the German had a flat, phase-wise insecure, and sloppy. An example of this? Andreas Wolff held a seven-meter, and even the immediate Nachwurf from close range, against the second Nachwurf even he was powerless. Wolff, quarreled with his comrades in Front, and struck with the Hand against the post. Who would blame him?More about

After a quarter of an hour in the passage of two of Wolff's colleagues were managed just three hits. This confirmed the General impression of the tournament: as unpleasant As the German may be on the Defensive, as limited as they are, sometimes, in private possession. In the closing minutes Prokop's Team afterwards was always a tight residue, could compensate, in the best case and awarded on several occasions, the opportunity for leadership. With the conclusion of the second Karabatic hit after a ball loss of the German Offensive to a decisive 26:25 for the French. It was his first hit was in the game.
