Although Denmark had the control during almost the whole game against France, the Olympic champions took over at the very last minute. With this results, even though Iceland gathered two points against Montenegro earlier today, Gudmundur Gudmundsson’s team will face Norway for the 5th place. The French team meets Sweden, while the Danes will fight the Spaniards for the final at EHF EURO 2022.
Iceland won the match, but Montenegro won the hearts of handball lovers
…and then the player of today’s first game was called after the final whistle: ‘player number 14…(pause)...from Montenegro, Milos Vujovic!’
So, the European Handball Federation chose from the losing side, not by accident: Vujovic, who spent six seasons in Tatabánya, Hungary, played exceptionally.
Iceland easily took two points (34:24) from the outperforming Montenegrin side and the left wing lived with every chance to score: he netted both from an in-flight situation just like after a somersault. Moreover, his goals (11) mostly came after the half-time, not to forget that he only missed two.
The islanders were a little surprised after the above mentioned pause as their number 14, Omar Ingi Magnusson also scored 11-times this afternoon, what a coincidence.
However, the jury may have appreciated the effort shown by Vujovic and the whole Montenegrin squad. The players have expressed their feelings and thoughts multiple times about how they enjoy their time in Budapest, and this is exactly what happened today. Let's raise our hats!
