Spain and Denmark reach for World Championship glory
«Go back »Print Version


NEWS REPORT: Four and a half years after Spain and Denmark battled for gold at the Men’s World Championship 2013, the two nations meet again in a final – this time on Sunday, 30 July, at the Men’s 21 World Championship in Algeria
 

Spain and Denmark reach for World Championship glory

It is arguably fair to say that many of the Danish and Spanish players who will take to the court in Algiers this Sunday night in the final of the Men's 21 World Championship in Algeria will remember the last time Denmark and Spain met in the final of a World Championship.

They were around 17 years of age around that time and probably quite a few of them will have watched the final – on TV or maybe even in the arena.

In 2013, Spain beat Denmark 35:19 to claim Men’s World Championship gold in front of 16,500 spectators in the Palau Sant Jordi in Barcelona.

Now, four and a half years later, both nations meet again.

And hence this Sunday, at 18:00 hrs local time in the Salle Omnisport Harcha Hocine in Algiers, there is chance for some sort of redemption for Denmark.

For Spain it is a possibility to underline their supremacy when it comes to handball being played by the generation 1996 – only one year ago they topped the podium at the Men’s 20 EHF EURO in Denmark.

If Spain win, it’d be their first title at this level; Denmark have won the Men’s 21 World Championship three times already: in 1997, 1999 and 2005.

The match is streamed live on the Algeria 2017 YouTube Channel.

Spain reached the final following a 26:21 win against Germany, the side they also beat one year ago in the final of the Men’s 20 EHF EURO – it was the team's eighth consecutive win at this championship.

Denmark beat France 37:34 on Saturday night to reach the final. Denmark finished 6th at the Men’s 20 EHF EURO 2016 while France won bronze.

When this year’s finalists met at quarter-final of the Men’s 19 World Championship 2015, Spain beat Denmark 23:18.

At 15:30 hrs local time, France and Germany play for bronze at the Men’s 21 World Championship. The match is also streamed live.
