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.
