Handball World Cup: France loses a game for the first time in six years
At some point, each series ends, which also had to learn the French. They lost - against Croatia. Germany's handball player will be pleased.
France's handball players have lost their last major round match at the World Cup in Cologne 20:23 (11:11) against Croatia. Best thrower of the winner was Zlatko Horvat with seven goals. Again Croatia, you will think in France now. It's exactly six years to the day that France had lost a game in a World Cup finals - also in the quarterfinals of 2013 they lost Croatia, at that time even 23:30.
This was followed by two finals, at the end of which the world champion was called France. France was undefeated 24 games in a row - that this series just before the last major round game of the German handball team against Spain (20.30 clock, TV: ARD, live ticker SPIEGEL ONLINE) ripped, you will have seen in the hall in Cologne like.
In the fight for the group victory, the German team could even afford a defeat with seven goals. The Croatians secured third place in the main round group by winning in front of 17,191 spectators and thus taking part in a qualifying tournament for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. The world champion solves the Olympic ticket directly.
