FINAL REVIEW: Swedes fire in 20 goals in the second half against Iceland to win the Men’s 18 EHF EURO 2018 in Varazdin
 

Gold for Sweden after superb second half

Sunday evening’s Men’s 18 EHF EURO Final between Sweden and Iceland was a topsy turvy affair, which ended with a 32:27 win and gold medal for the Swedes.

Only one team turned up for the opening 15 minutes as Sweden stormed into an 8:2 lead, but Iceland have been impressive throughout this championship and were not going to give in easily.

Iceland fought their way back and drew level at 12:12 just before the break, leaving the final beautifully in the balance.

The third quarter of the match remained tight, before Sweden stepped up a couple of gears.

With the score at 21:20, Valter Chrintz and Ludvig Hallbäck took over, like they have so often, scoring 10 of the next 11 goals for Sweden and Iceland simply had no response.

Sweden’s 32:27 win was their second at this level and their first in 21 years. Earlier that day, Denmark claimed bronze with a 26:24 win over host nation Croatia.
