Final: France vs Slovenia 30:31 (16:15)
Grego Ocvirk completed a succesful day at the office today, scoring 11 times against the French with their strong defence to not only win the top-scorer prize by one goal, but guide his side to a gold medal.

3/4 Placement Match: Germany vs Portugal 29:26 (14:11)
This duel of the disappointed saw both teams who lost their semi-finals yesterday compete for the final available medal place in Celje and it was a best player performance from the six-goal Jannek Klein that saw his Germany team take a three-goal victory over Portugal to claim bronze.

5/6 Placement Match: Croatia vs Spain 26:27 (12:13)
Two heavyweight nations played off for fifth spot with Croatia just falling short by one goal as Spain did enough - especially in a frantic last 21 seconds - to take a one-goal victory (27:26) despite an eight-goal, best player performance from Croatia's Josip Sarac.

7/8 Placement Match: Iceland vs Serbia 30:27 (13:12)
Nine goals from Petur Hauksson earnt him the best player award and his side an early-morning victory against Serbia as they northern Europeans ended their campaign in Slovenia with a well-earned win.

9/10 Placement Match: Norway vs Sweden 24:20 (16:6)
This all-Scandinavian clash was easily won by Norway, who had a 10-goal lead at the break but we were gradually pulled back in by the Swedes, but there was not enough time to close that original 10-goal gap as the match ended four in favour of the Norwegians.

11/12 Placement Match: Hungary vs Denmark 31:29 (15:16)
This was a play-off to qualify direct for the Men's 21 World Championship next year, with 11 places availabe. Denmark had looked strong in the first half, leading by one at the break but back came Hungary who showed some effective shooting.
