Powerful Norway survive Hamburg’s hell for the new final!

Norway will play against Denmark for the first ever gold medal at World Championships on Sunday in Herning. Amazingly strong, persistant, tactically perfect, played team of Christian Berge tonight under pressure at “Barclaycard Arena” in Hamburg, to outplay home team – 31:25 (14:12).

Sander Sagosen had everything in their own hands, a lot of goals, nice passes to Magnus Rod and Bjarte Myrhol, who once again prove that is man of steel.

Czech referees Novotny and Horacek didn’t let rugby style of German central defenders Pekeler and Wiencek, and that prevented Prokop’s boys from superiority in defensive tasks.

Germany lead 3:1 at the beginning, last time two teams were in balance on 9:9. Everything else was in Norwegian hands…
