The German handball players have finished the European Championship qualification with 12: 0 points. On Sunday they beat Kosovo 28:17. The focus was on returnee Tobias Reichmann. He scored three times and missed two seven-meter meters.
The German handball players have said goodbye with another high victory and a perfect balance in the European Championship qualification for the summer break. The team of national coach Christian Prokop came on Sunday against Kosovo to a superior 28:17 (16: 5) success. For the European Championship 2020, the team was already qualified before, Prokop therefore waived a number of permanent employees. Now there is an immaculate yield of 12: 0 points in the group. The best thrower in the Nuremberg Arena, which sold out with more than 7,000 spectators, was Johannes Golla with six goals.
Although played the DHB selection in the second half significantly weaker, she was in serious trouble against the clear outsider but at no time. Thanks to the strong parades of goalkeeper Wolff, she conceded only in the ninth minute their first goal to 1: 5. Prokop later says he has been "mighty impressed" for forty minutes: "After that, there was a bit of a hustle and bustle, but it was still a very good week and a very nice qualification."
On the offensive, it was the German team after the break to take it easy, returnee Tobias Reichmann even awarded two seven-meter. Against the weak keeper of the Kosovars was almost every throw attempt in goal.
Prokop gave some young internationals a chance, as they did in the 40:25 victory in Israel last week. Reichmann, who was back in the squad for the first time after his surprise removal before the World Cup in January, was allowed to be in the starting lineup, but the 31-year-old right winger was not much in the initial phase except for a beautifully completed Kempa trick. The former European champion Reichmann said after his comeback: "It was very promising for the fact that we were so motley together, it was a lot of fun, it's a nice feeling to feel the confidence of the coach again."
On Sunday, a number of actors for the coming tasks played in the foreground. Circuit Golla from German champion SG Flensburg-Handewitt took almost every chance. Back space player Philipp Weber played in the absence of captain Uwe Gensheimer impressive. Auxiliary captain Kai Häfner and goalkeeper Wolff were the only players in the squad who were also used at the World Cup. The fact that the team in this formation has hardly played together so far, was shown by minor voting problems in the defensive network. However, a good goalkeeper could also rely in the second half: Klimpke, who had come into the match for Wolff, fended off a few attempts at throwing. After the summer vacation, the national team meets again at the end of October to two international matches against Croatia again.
