Norway broke the great streak of Spain in the European in the cruelest way.

The Nordics, tremendously physical, punished the lack of clarity of the Hispanics in attack and their many doubts in defensive tasks to endorse them in this case a resounding 22-27 which is, in turn, the final point to 17 games won in a row in a tournament that they finished in the best possible way in their last two editions.

Despite everything, the team coached by

still depends on itself to get into the semifinals. If they beat Poland in their last main round match on Tuesday, they will be in contention for the medals. To do this, however, you have to learn from mistakes.

It was of little use to Spain to take a 2-0 lead in the opening moments of the match. Norway, with a game to the limit in defensive tasks and a devastating start in attack, managed very soon to neutralize that initial advantage of the Hispanics and even go as far as five goals on the scoreboard.

The Spaniards, who came to be just one goal away from the Norwegians, were repeatedly canceled in attack by the team led by Christian Berge.

Their tremendous effectiveness in destructive tasks and their physical power also allowed them not only to quickly put to rest the brief good feelings of the Hispanics, but also to put themselves back in a maximum advantage of five goals on the scoreboard that, in the end, would be a slope. too difficult to climb for Jordi Ribera's team and that also ended up being shaped in the hard 22-27 final.
