Orange needs another win
The Dutch handball players have won against Angola and Cuba, placing for the next round will be quite a job. The team lost in the first game of Slovenia and that loss can still take revenge. The Orange team, which must be at least third to continue to the next round, is currently second in the group. However, Serbia, Angola and Slovenia are breathing in the team. Moreover, the Netherlands still plays against the two strongest teams in the group: Serbia and leader Norway. Angola and Slovenia are still playing against weak Cuba. Orange has to achieve at least one good result to continue.
