Faroe Islands beat hosts Sweden to win Men’s 17 European Open

Faroe Islands completed a near-flawless campaign at the Men’s 17 European Open by downing hosts Sweden in the final and lifting the trophy in front of more than 6,000 fans at the Scandinavium in Gothenburg on Friday night.

Leading by just one goal (16:15) at half-time, Faroe Islands ultimately won the final 36:29. Back court player Elias Ellefsen a Skipagotu contributed 10 goals, while centre back Elliot Stenhalm led for Sweden with eight.

A Skipagotu raised his total for the tournament to 69 and became the top scorer, two goals clear of Georgia’s Nikoloz Kalandaze. He was also named MVP of the tournament.

Iceland finished third after edging Belarus 30:29 in the bronze-medal match.

Faroe Islands failed to win only one of their nine matches at the tournament, losing 18:16 to Israel in their last match of the preliminary round when they had already secured their place in the next phase.

In the main round, they defeated Spain, Belarus and Hungary, while Sweden drew with Czech Republic before beating Italy and Iceland to win the other main-round group and advance to the final.

The European Open provide a stage to Europe’s youngest generations of internationals to showcase their skills. For the first time all matches of the 24-nation tournament were streamed live on ehfTV.com, the OTT platform of the European Handball Federation.
