The DHB team meets the Olympic champion in the quarterfinals of the World Cup in the evening. But even if you lose, the tournament is not over for the German handball players.

For the German handball players, the World Cup goes against Olympic champions after the quarter-finals France definitely further. However, where the team of national coach Alfred Gislason will continue the tournament will only be decided in the evening.

Loses the DHBselection against the record world champion, she flies to Stockholm on Thursday. In this case, there will be a duel with the loser of the game Sweden against Egypt in the placement round on Friday. If Germany wins this game, the match for fifth place will take place on Sunday – again in Stockholm. In the event of a defeat, seventh place is at stake in the Swedish capital.

It gets complicated when you win. If the German team makes it into the semi-finals, the venue depends on the outcome of the Sweden-Egypt match. If the European champion progresses, Friday will also be in Stockholm played because the co-hosts were promised home rights for this game by the world association IHF.

However, wins Egypt, the DHB selection would stay in Gdansk and fight there against the African champions for a place in the final. “Of course it’s a big problem for the fans not to know where a possible semi-final will take place,” said DHB sports director Axel Kromer, criticizing the schedule. The bronze game and the final take place in Stockholm on Sunday.
