REVIEW: Olympic champions take EHF EURO Crown with a convincing 41:32 win, while Spain hold down EHF EURO 2012 bronze medallists, Croatia
 

France win EHF EURO Final against Denmark, Spain take bronze

With a 41:32 win in the final at the Jyske Bank Boxen in Herning on Sunday, France took their third EHF EURO title in history.

France were completely dominating from the start of the final. Their attacking and physical defence changed a lot between a 6:0 and a 4:2 formation, with which they had enjoyed certain success against Denmark at the Golden League on home court at the beginning of January, even though the Danes won 29:28 back then.

This time France had tremendous success with their defence, as the Danes had enormous problems creating scoring opportunities - and when they did, Thierry Omeyer stood in the way.

The 37-year-old French veteran definitely won the goalkeeper duel against his 12 years younger adversary Niklas Landin, and, for that matter, against Denmark's second goalkeeper Jannick Green as well.

Top scorer Canellas nets another eight to give Spain bronze

They danced on the court, they were jumping all over and they were given a big hand by the 14,000 spectators: For the second time Spain have become EHF EURO bronze medallists.

Led by Joan Canellas, who added eight goals to his tally to become top scorer of the event with an overall tally of 50 goals, the Iberians were lucky to stand the pressure of the Croats but eventually took a nail-biting 29:28 win.

Croatia missed their fourth straight bronze medal after they had finished third at the EHF EURO 2012, the Olympic Games 2012 and the World Championship 2013.

"Obviously I'm very happy. We came here looking for a medal. There is no extra motivation for games like this. You always go 100 per cent," said Spain's Viran Morros

Led by the brilliant Joan Canellas, Spain were ahead by 16:13 at the break in a match that was dominated by the back court shooters.

On the Croatian side Domagoj Duvnjak, who was named 2013 World Handball Player after the match and was also awarded 'Best Player' of his team, and Denis Buntic were the best players before the break, as the Spanish game was a one-man show of Canellas.
