Euro 2022 handball: The French team qualified for the semi-finals if…

A decisive shock. The France team finds Denmark this Wednesday at Euro 2022 handball with the mission of qualifying for the semi-finals. And the Blues will be sure to reach the last four if they do not bow to the Danish double world champions in title.

The future of the Habs in the competition was considerably darkened after the defeat conceded against Iceland (21-29). But he got away with the big victory against Montenegro (36-27), added to the setback conceded by the Icelanders against Croatia.

While a success for the Nordic country would have forced Valentin Porte’s teammates to win with no less than seven goals to climb into the last four, a victory or even a draw will finally be enough for the Blues to clinch their ticket for the last square. They may even be qualified before the match if Iceland do not win in the afternoon against Montenegro.

But one thing is certain, the Danes, who surely did not digest their setback five months ago in Tokyo, will enter the field with the desire to take their revenge, even if they are already qualified. “I think that after the final of the Olympic Games, they don’t want to give a gift and that’s normal,” assured Nikola Karabatic. “We will have to be ready from the start, until the end, launched Karl Konan for his part. The slightest mistakes will be fatal, but we are made for that. We only want to play our luck to the end.
