A gate of Captain Johannes Golla in the last second has gave the German handhookers to the conclusion of the international double pack against Hungary a successful general rehearsal for the showdown in the World Cup qualifier. The team of national coach Alfred Gislason defeated the World Cup fifth in Kassel thanks to the late hit with 30:29 (17:13) and presented himself well prepared for the crucial play-off games against the Faroe Islands in April.
“John saved us at the end with a laser beam,” Julius said Kühn at Sport1 over his goal in the empty gate – shortly after the balance of the Hungary: “That we won, what counts. But there were fluctuations in it ” Gislason annoyed itself above all over the completely superfluous ball loss shortly before the end, which enabled the opponent 29:29. Nevertheless, he said, “We deserve won.”
Best throwers of the selection of the German Handball Confederation (DHB) in front of 3011 spectators in the Rothenbach Halle were the throwing-efficient bold and right outside Timo Kastening with five goals each. On Saturday, the EM-sevente against Hungary in Gummersbach had still had to be satisfied with a 31:31 (17:16). Fabian again scored nine hits.
Returner Juri Knorr had then called “a little more killer quality”, and these showed the DHB team after a short stopping phase. After the first guided tour of Castening to 5: 4 (8.), the three-time world champion turned properly.
The parades of goalkeeper Andreas Wolff also showed the cover compared to the first comparison with Hungary significantly improved. The movable defense and the won two-strokes made for some ball gains and thus for light goals in the tempo shock. Wage was the first four-goal lead by Tim Zechel at 9: 5 (13th). The circular run from Erlangen had only celebrated his debut in the national jersey on Saturday and now scored his premier goal.
Through a transformed seven meter of Marcel Schiller, the DHB team moved to seven goals at 13: 6 (19.). Until the break, however, some unconcentrities legified.
The hosts were also difficult at the beginning of the second passage, which is so comfortable protrusion Schmolz due to criminal times and some impermays on a hit (18: 17/38.). Wolff replacement Till Klimpke was also not a factor in this phase.
As a result, the DHB team increased again in all areas. David Schmidt restored for a more calming four-goal lead (25: 21/48.).
In Gummersbach, the strong wider (nine goals) with a turner to the post in the final minute worshiped the victory. But Gislason made him “no reproach”. Rather, after the first comparison, the Icelanders roamed the “lost two-fighting in the defensive” and “poor opportunities” after the break.
