BORING THURSDAY: Easy wins for France and Croatia

France and Croatia celebrated routine wins at the start of the Main Round in Krakow. Both matches had clear favorites, but it wasn’t expected that the difference between the rivals will be too visible. France smashed Belarus 34:23 (20:5) in the first 10 minutes. Nikola Karabatić had 9/9 in the first half, so Claude Onesta had a chance to rotate all his players in order to refresh them before crucial match with Croatia on Wednesday.


Same story has been seen in Croatian win over Macedonia 34:24 (17:13). Croatia opened match in classy manner with 7:1, but Macedonians, obviously exausted after Preliminary Round battle against Serbia, managed to get back until half-time break. However, Ivan Slišković (6) and Co. showed domination in the second half…


Poland 4
