First semi-final for Norway: It’s a fairy tale!

Norway will play for the medals at Men’s EHF EURO 2016! That would be a first time in the history of Norwegian men’s handball that one generation qualified for the semi-final! Amazing success, even bigger after defeat in opener against Iceland 26:25, something to make all Scandinavians proud. Olympic qualifications are in the pocket of Christian Berge and his guys, but the first gold medal could bring Olympics directly:

-We almost feel like in a fairy tale. It is unbelievable. When we came to Poland, our goal was to reach some points and get through the first round and now we are in the semi-final. When we advanced to the main round and beat Poland we knew everything was possible – said left wing Magnus Jondal.

Right wing Kristian Bjornsen added:

– Nobody except ourselves believed we could make that today. The whole game was like we planned it. France are a very difficult team to play with a lot of superstars on the team. But our defence and the goalkeeper were amazing today.
