Korea spoil Scandinavian party at Women's Youth World Championship

Denmark, Norway and Sweden could have all reached the semi-finals at the Women's Youth World Championship in Slovakia, however only the former two made it when the quarter-finals were played on Thursday.

Denmark, winners of Women's 17 EHF EURO 2015, beat Croatia 30:20, while Norway beat Hungary 28:27.

Korea then spoiled the Scandinavian party when they beat Sweden 27:24. Completing the semi-finalists' line-up were Russia who beat France 24:19.

With Norway facing Denmark at 17:30 hrs on Saturday and Russia playing Korea at 20:00 hrs local time on Saturday, all is potentially set for a repetition of the Women's 17 EHF EURO 2015 Final. One year ago, Denmark beat Russia 25:24.

The final takes place on 31 July. For more information and a live stream of all matches, visit the offcial website.
