Denmark and Sweden win, Norway qualifies

The three organizing countries of the Women’s Handball World Cup won on Friday: Denmark and Sweden successfully entered the competition, respectively against Serbia (25-21) and China (36-24), while Norway, defending champion, qualified after her demonstration against Austria (45-28).

In Herning, in front of 12,000 supporters, the Danes (group E) were hot, only taking the lead for the first time six minutes from the end before escaping, thanks in particular to their goalkeeper Sandra Toft (5 saves on 14 shots) and in Messina Kristina Jorgensen (5 goals on 9 attempts). In Sweden’s Group A, Senegal created a surprise by beating Croatia (22-22) in Gothenburg.

No Mork, no problem

Norway, in Stavanger, was once again deprived of its star Nora Mork: who remained in the stands for the opening match, this time she appeared on the match sheet but did not come into play. In addition to the Norwegians, Spain and Brazil qualified for the main round after their respective big successes against Ukraine (32-20) and Kazakhstan (46-15) in Group G in Frederikshavn in Denmark.
