World cup heroes: They went from a Germany in tears

GERMANY is a great power in almost all sports year around. They follow anyone in the summer OLYMPICS and the winter OLYMPICS, wins it all in football and is ranked as the world's best in handball. Last night they played at home in front of a lydmur as kommunelegen in Hamburg on the whatsoever another night would have stopped the interest of public health.

It was the frame for håndballguttas the world cup semi-final, and it throws up a masterpiece:

Norway was so brilliant that Germany best håndballmenn was left standing as a pretty primitive bunch.

Or as factual Frankfurter Algemeinde Zeitung admitted it:

We gave everything, but it was not enough. We have no first officer that the Sander Sagosen.

It was, therefore, the front of the herostratisk famous yesterday evening was covered with German an athlete who was crying, while the Norwegian håndballgutta headed north to Denmark to play the world cup final.

the German media has little else to say on the surprising loss than to quote the honest coach Christian Prokop:

We found no solution. Today, Norway was simply better.

FOR right from the start was the German meat against the English speed. It gave many ugly bangs, but the outcome was soon clear. Here was the pace so high that kjøttvekta not worked:

It comes something new from us. You will not see anything other than speed, said coach Christian Berge right before the start of the game, but why require something new? In herrehåndball it's his regular way to play on that the last few years has creates the trend. It is moving ever faster with Norway as the sport's very fastest and technically most playful team.

It is a development to be proud of in a vinternasjon not in any other team sport has a reputation for to be in the forefront of the technical development.

What we have in long periods been in kvinnehåndball. Now the same happens among the guys in a sport that counts even more layers and that holds an even higher level.

FOR it is level it is to talk about. Or more precisely: the Knowledge to see what is good in sports.

For a star! Red is the best on the stock exchange

the Other was someone who tvitret that we should put away the Norwegian discussion about who was the world's best handball player. Then had Sander Sagosen mess away against Denmark in the group stage, and it was certainly appropriate to have pressed him a bit down.

Exactly it does not work distinctly smart in the evening.

NOW , it is rarely especially wise to use single matches as the decisive argument in these rankings. The level is shown in the series of achievements. Giant Mikkel Hansen who shot the Uk in pieces in the match in the group stage where Sagosen failed, is not thereby better than the eight years younger Norwegian. The dane is among the largest in their sport because such achievements come often, and any time in the matches where a lot is at stake.

As for example a world cup final. A to Hansen with 12 goals and the rest of the danes fixed against France a few hours before Norway ran from Germany while Sander Sagosen; still only 23 years old, distributed the goodies.

IT was the world cup final it was for the Sander also. To and with a VM--finale which according to him should end with Norwegian gold.

Furious Sagosen refused to take the teammate in your hand

Sander Sagosen has a good CV in such important matches. Sparkling against in the european CHAMPIONSHIP semifinal against Germany three years ago, just as strong against Croatia in the world cup semi-finalists the year after and masterful best against the same team when håndballgutta not quite managed to follow up and fucked medaljemulighetene in EM in the last year.

Only in the world cup final against France in Paris two years ago was not the Sander completely itself. It gives a miss in crucial matches in four championships in a row; that is, a smooth variety with great achievements in the large caps.

But this was the biggest.

NOT because the Sander Sagosen was flawless. It is not humanly possible with as much ballkontakt. But this time, it meant a couple of balltap nothing against all the målgivende pasningene and the crucial goals.

The most beautiful goal came a few minutes before the end when the germans flailed over to get one last chance and the referee had his arm in the air. One second, and Norway would have been blown off for passive play. But the second was time enough for even a kattemyk Sagosen-for instance, even a big, heavy German, which was too late and even a Norwegian goal.

We stopped on the 31. Germany on the 25.

WHEN due to memory about where this match was played. It was not only in a sold out hall in Hamburg, but right in front of the eyes of the world's largest håndballpublikum.

It was therefore the German chancellor Angela Merkel sent a special video greeting to the guys in the locker room before the match:

- You've got us all in ecstasy. Not only with the rapid game, but also with power and the community. It has led you far, greeted the boss.

So everything was ready to send Germany against Norway. After that handball came back on the open CHANNELS in Germany, has viewing been brilliant. Already in the group stages overall, the German fighting over 12 million viewers on the national ZDF with a market share of around 50 per cent, and this Friday night had almost a whole nation stopped to see their heroes play for the world cup final.

instead, they see how beautiful baseball is.

When it's played by the Norwegian håndballgutter.

FOOTNOTE: It is however not the case in Norway that the mases so much about that Sander Sagosen is the best in the world. It was the international fagnettstedet Handball Planet which named him to the other. We should not disregard that they have the right.

He has been Norway's best TV commentator
