There are 32 teams and the last time out of the 16 that made it to the next round just one was non-European (ROK).
My apologies for my ignorance (it wasn't meant to be intentionally provocative) but I wasn't aware of the video images and clips that several posters showed me. I was under the mistaken impression that it was similar to the game where you hit a ball against the wall (which we used to play at recess) and the international version was akin to something like squash. Sorry if I offended anybody, but it just struck me as ridiculous that anyone would prefer handball to hockey.
