Handball again

Our handball boys unexpectedly got to the finals of the World Championship! They are playing against France who has been by far the best team in the tournament, and they have the home advantage. We absolutely don’t except to win, but with this team who knows. 

The semi finals on friday was a real thriller. I was lucky to watch the game with great colleagues. After our keeper saved a penalty in the last minute securing us a tie leading to extra time. Where we had most to give. 

Everybody loves an underdog and as Norway was the last team to not make the qualifiers they only got the spot in the Championship when a nation from Oseania did not have a team. We got the wild card and got to play . And the frustration from losing in the last game turned to happiness when we got a chance. Then to go all the way to the finals is just amazing! 

Hope you’re all enjoying your Sunday!

  1. Well…I believe Norway defeated France 29-24 at the European championships last year and only lost to them 31-28 in the Preliminaries. Should be a great Final. Best of luck as they go for the Gold!

  2. I love these kind of tales. We call them Cinderella stories over here. The team nobody expected shines.
