From this article: https://www.aftenposten.no/100Sport/bal ... 7047b.html

Google Translate:
Now Norway's best judges are back home. There will be no final this time, as they got in the Olympic Games in Rio.

"We felt it went well along the way, and we have done our best in the matches we have been awarded. Unfortunately, it did not quite go this time, "said Arntsen

NED - NOR. Referees: KURTAGIC M / WETTERWIK M (SWE)

SWE - FRA. Referees: GARCIA I / MARIN A (ESP)

Are they saving the "glorious" Danish HANSEN L. / CHRISTIANSEN C. for the final match? :lol:

The Final Weekend in Hamburg is sold-out although it seems on ebay you can still find some tickets.

Nice ambiente in the Barclay Arena in Hamburg with about 13.000 spectators.

Image

Based on the games and the performance so far I expect Norway Holland to be a walk-over for Norway with +10/+5. Sweden France will be close but I expect France to win. Holland depends to much on Abbingh, GK Wester with to low percentage and Groot still a questionmark. If Oftedal can play her game as against Russia then no chance for the Orange girls. Mork, Loke no questionmarks. Groot a big one.

Final Result predictions
1. Norway
2. France
3. Sweden
4. Holland

Since the end of the last season (6 months ago) Nycke Groot has only played 4 matches with her club, in this WCH (14 days) she has played 7 matches. If she wasn’t injured things would be different in this battle NEDvsNOR.

For the fourth time in a row (WC 2015, OS 2016, EC 2016) is was Norway Holland on a big tournament. The game was over before it actually started, 8-1 for Norway after I thought 12 minutes. The Orange girls had no plan, no strategy although they said they would have. Norway was more than the sum of some talented players, it was an organised and structured machine with a plan.
Norway was good, Holland bad, that 's it. Groot out in second half because of migraine problems also did not help.

France Sweden was much more interesting to watch, victory for France. I stick to my final result predictions.

^ I think part of "the plan" was to take care of Loeke. Which they (kind of) did. But in doing so, they were completely overrun by the Norwegian 9m line. Take a look at their first half stats and see how balanced their contributions were.
Then, Norway seems to be in a special state of mind after the wake up call against Sweden. They're playing absolutely fantastic fast paced handball and I can't think of any team that can stop them from winning it.

The French have some good arguments on their side (very good defence, very good at running back and some good attacking players) and they'll likely give them a run for their money, but somehow I don't see them able to play "clean" handball against Norway for the full length of the match. I think Norway will prevail in the end.

Our very best team ever :)

Strong, fast, daring, tough..,pick your own superlatives...Norway have them all....- It's sexy handball :)

Did I mention the good mood with a lot of smiles and laughing??? Well, it's a side effect of the winning culture :) U should try it, hehe :)
Image

Netherland was just a victim on the path to a new final...they didn't stand a chance...as did Russia and Spain standing in their way...being traumatized for a loooong time :)

The defeat to Sweden was very important right before the ko matches, as the girls began to think victory comes at itself. Because it don't ofc...it's bloody hard work, and they got a reminder of that against Sweden. Thank u Sweden :)

I am just so glad we have found a new general in defense, Kari Brattset, taking over the role after Frafjord, and also a newcomer!!! :)
Image
Guess you won't be playing in Norwegian league much more.. :)

I have to mention Lunde as well. Aged 37, mother, and everyone thought the best times were in the past. She is now better than EVER, incredible :)
Image

France next....victim, hehe :) Or must stop this attacking line somehow...if it is possible :)
Image

Good luck girls :)

From 7-4 for Norway to 10-11 for France Half-Time in a low scoring game.

Bronze medal for Holland, 14-8 HT and then from 16-9 for Holland to 16-18 for Sweden :roll:! But Holland did win bronze 24-21.

Thorir did not let any rest for the key players through the whole tournament. Krumbholz did.
+ the French star coach knew very well that he can let Skogrands place unguarded + the Danish blind chicks would let the pivot to be defended via using the inside area.

Really enjoyable final to watch. Congratulations France!

French team was definitely better. They did a great job of preparing for the game, by getting the hang of rival. Mørk, Oftendal and their teammates didn't have much to do, as many Norway's moves were predicted.

I cheered for title holders, but I was a bit satisfied that Amandine won it. "Doudou" was really cute and charming, when she just started to cry from happiness after the final whistle. Moments like this show, what is competitive sport all about : )

Yup, it's her nickname. Btw, "doudou" in French means "blankie".

You don't have to be sorry, I consider that just as a curiosity brought by our commentators.
