The established thought they would fix it. But the new mode doesn’t forgive mistakes. The European Handball Championship did good surprises – even if the French and Danes struggle.

Dhe new mode does not forgive mistakes. France thought for 56 minutes that it would still conquer Portugal. Denmark wanted to use the full force of experience in the long, last attack and to score the winning goal against Hungary in the closing second. But Portugal remained quicker and braver, and the Hungarians resisted everything they had in defense.

France, the World Cup third: eliminated after the preliminary round. World champion Denmark: on the way home after only three games. Predicting results in handball has always been difficult. It’s almost impossible this time – welcome to the European Championship of Surprises!
