– The decision is made on the basis of what consequences it will have if the match contributes to the spread of infection, says commercial manager Jan-Erik Aalbu in the Norwegian Handball Association in a press release.

– The risk of infection is small, but the consequences are very large due to the strict rules for the European Championships. This is not a purely medical assessment, but an overall assessment, says the Norwegian national team doctor Thomas Torgalsen to VG.

– We have had a case of infection, and Norway is worried about whether there may be more, says sports manager Morten Henriksen in the Danish Handball Association to Danish TV 2.

– I am very upset about the time the decision was made, Henriksen continues and adds that he was only notified at 22:50 on Wednesday night.

Even though Thursday’s match has been canceled, it is still planned that Saturday’s settlement will be played as scheduled.

– The goal is still to play that match. Before that time, we have a few extra days with hopefully negative tests of both teams’ players, says Aalbu.

The case is being updated.
