A Darko Carol
Darko Djukic and Frankis Carol, with 13 goals combined ensured the clear win, as Manuel Gaspar (11 saves) constructed his own green and white wall at the back. These were the basis of Sporting's second triumph in group B, despite the best efforts of Adam Nyfjäll who scored a third of the total goals for the hosts, with nine strikes in 10 shots.
We knew it was going to be an intense match. IFK Kristianstad plays fast handball and we tried to take it away from them by playing long attacks. The first half was almost perfectly executed by us and we were able to remove their key players.
