Croatia vs Brazil is the next game up, it's starts in about 1:45h. I hope our girls will win this one.
Anything for Canadians?

France and Norway are playing right now.

3 minutes left to play, I don't think Norway can come back now.

Big shot by Norway! 23-21

Mens tournament starts tommorow with Iceland and Argentina opening the competition.

Schedule for 29th of July:

Group A

10:30AM CET, 4:30AM ET, Iceland vs Argentina

Iceland is the clear cut favourite in this game and even tough Argentina improved a lot in recent years anything except their win would be a big surprise.

3:30PM CET, 9:30AM ET, Sweden vs Tunisia

Tough game to predict, Sweden depends on their goalies and their biggest star Kim Andersson, Tunisia is pretty wild and when they're on they can beat anyone.

8:30PM CET, 2:30PM ET, France vs Great Britain

This should be an easy days work for France.

Group B

12:15PM CET, 6:15AM ET, Croatia vs South Korea

Croatia is big favourite in this game, but S. Korea has traditionaly been a tricky opponent for them. This should be an entertaining fast paced game.

5:15PM CET, 11:15AM ET, Spain vs Serbia

A tough one to call, both teams play tough hard nosed defense, but while Spain relies more on fast-breaks and line play while they're in offense, Serbia depends on their two big shooters from the outside (Vujin and Ilić). This game is must see TV for handball fans.

10:15PM CET, 4:15PM ET, Hungary vs Denmark

Denmark is the favourite here IMHO, but Hungary could provide an upset. This should be a good game hard nose game, both team don't shy away from borderline dirty play in defense.

5 players to watch on the oppening game:

1. Arpad Šterbik - big Serbian goalie who's playing for Spain now, he should be motivated against his native country.

2. Darko Stanić - Serbian goalie and their biggest star, it will be fun to see who does better, he or Arpad?

3. Kim Andersson - he needs to have a big game for Sweden in their match against Tunisia.

4. Mikkel Hansen
- one of the best handball players in the world, he'll have to be at a high level for Denmark to win against Hungary.

5. Laszlo Nagy
- Hungary's answer to Hansen, those two will go toe to toe both when they're playing defense and offense.

Bonus: Croatia's Ivano Balić - handball's Mozart (or Magic/Jordan if you prefer it that way) and the most creative handball player today. He always plays good against S. Korea.

That France-Norway game was terrific. Exciting right up until the end. The French goalie was awesome.

Found there's some clubs in London and one in my home-town but that's University based. Might have to enquire about joining.

That's going to be a tough game for us, we always play close games with Korea for some reason and we always suck in opening games. They started the game by playing wild 3-3 defense and their goalie is on fire.

Great game thus far, quick ball movement in attack and great defense and Alilović is great in goal, I'm loving it.

Maybe it's just me, but I hate watching games with no commentary.

I not a big fan of that as well, but I'll rather have no commentary than listen to someone who doesn't know what he's talking about.

EDIT:

Our defense is having a block party.

Seems like Croatia scores a goal on every possession, fairly easy too.

They missed a lot of chances as well, but our defense and Alilović are playing great right now. Korea can't play good defense against our team, we're too fast for them when they play a wild 3-3 or 4-2 zone and their defense isn't tall enough to stop our great outside shooters if they play in a classic 6-0 defense.


Iceland won their game against Argentina 31-25.

31-21 for Croatia in the end.

Sweden vs Tunisia is up next, that should be an interesting game. Looking forward to watching Du Rietz play.

Yeah, Tunisia is flat out dirty sometimes and Swedes don't shy away from physical play as well.

Their goalie is on fire, but we're taking the rebounds.

Steady first half. Andersson better not be seriously injured though.
