When Sweden defeated Egypt in the world CHAMPIONSHIPS-the premiere, it was with my heart in my mouth as the handball team received two points.
Murmur – the shot that pushes the goalkeeper into madness
Against Argentina showed Sweden why the team is among the hottest medaljkandidaterna in the tournament.
the surprising knipit a score of Hungary in the opening game, were the warnings are being heard about while flying, but Sweden was a couple of classes for the good of South america's best teams were able to threaten.
The most impressive was Andreas Palicka.
– After 10-15 minutes, I came in in the match and then held it really almost the rest. I got a lot of saves and it is nice to get into the tournament. We get a direct hit as a team in the other, we are very good back, " says the goalkeeper to TV3.
Just as in the EM by lets Sweden goalies to start every match and therefore it was just Palicka, understudy in the premiere, which took place between the posts now. He started his hot evening in the city to keep a clean sheet in just over six minutes.
helped the ”Palle” much so far, but the 3-0 lead was eaten up pretty soon of argentines that is not least used that blue and yellow had two players expelled in a short time.
the score 6-6 in the middle of the first half had Argentina and a location to take the lead for the first time, but Palicka saved and instead could Sweden get a grip shortly thereafter. Eleven different scorers – that is to say, all the outfield players except pure defender Max Darj and positioned Simon Jeppsson – saw that Sweden was able to go to halvtidsvila in pleasant led 15-10.
a Few minutes into the second half of the game was written in the twelfth blue and yellow goalscorer in the score sheet. And it was no less than Andreas Palicka, who followed up one of their rescues to take advantage of Argentina had taken out the goalkeeper.
from the own goal meant 18-11 and tore down one of the evening's biggest cheers from the stands in the Royal Arena, which was almost equal gulblåfärgade that in the premiere.
Palicka was quite lyrical over the setting.
– It is completely supercharged, you get fit so that you don't get it. I was completely exhausted in the legs after five minutes and then I had not got a shot against me. The crowd is absolutely amazing. I have never experienced anything similar. One is proud to be american, and that so many come here and draw up such a mood, " he says.
realized probably the most that it would require a small argentine handbollsmirakel to create real emotion in the match. But the miracle did not occur, and Sweden won comfortably after that, although a inhoppande Jeppsson scored. Sharpest of all was Mattias Zachrisson with six hits.
– The most important thing today was that we got the two points. We get a pretty good matchbild because this is the match tomorrow (Monday) also. It felt really good even though it was a completely different resistance in the day. They play a different handball (than Egypt), and may not be of the caliber either, " says Zachrisson in TV3.
After two rounds, Sweden is the only fullpoängaren in the world CUP's group D. Already, Monday night play blue and yellow again and then is even more favorite when Angola stands for the resistance.
