Gjeding-Hansen calls for “challenge”, Gallego has nothing “against”

Danish referees Martin Gjeding and Mads Hansen called for thinking about “challenge” as an option which can help to avoid situation like in the finish of Germany-Croatia match in Cologne.

  • When a kind of fire occurs, it must either be switched off or prevented from occurring in the first place. There you might imagine that better use of video would be a good means. We already see in all other sports that the coaches have the opportunity to use a challenge. It may open things up – explains Mads Hansen.

International Handball Federation (IHF) judging committee Ramon Gallego to TV 2 SPORT said:

– We are open to improving the handball’s image in the future. When this championship would be over, we will discuss different things, and of course the idea of giving a challenge to the coaches is open. We have already discussed the possibility, but we prefer to take one step at a time.
