Beaten by Iceland, the France team has no room for error, this Monday, during its third match in the main round of the Euro handball against Montenegro to keep a hope of qualifying for the semi-finals. Here is the full TV schedule.
The Olympic champions have their backs to the wall. The large defeat suffered against the Icelanders (21-29), the first in the competition, placed the Blues in a very uncomfortable position. They will now have to fight hard to win their ticket to the last four.
The equation is now simple for Guillaume Gille’s men: they must absolutely beat the Montenegrins and then the Danish Olympic vice-champions, whom they had dominated in the final of the Tokyo Olympics last August. The case is far from simple, but the qualification for the semi-finals is at this price.
“We will have to fight,” acknowledged Nikola Karabatic. But while he is playing one of his last competitions with the Blues, he remains determined to rectify the situation to prevent the Blues from disillusionment. “We have our backs against the wall, no more jokers, we have to win the last two games if we want to go to the semi-finals, he said. Raise your head and show another face.” And it starts this Monday against Montenegro.
