Denmark tought Iceland a lesson

Denmark versus their alter ego

The only two Scandinavian nations at the 23rd Men's Handball World Championship, Iceland and Denmark had their 4th, and second last, match in the preliminary round tonight. The final score was Iceland 28-36 Denmark.

Between both sides there are more similarities than differences. Fast breaks, combination game, fluent and fast attacks and effective wings as a great offensive resource are some of the points in common between both teams. But this time Iceland was somehow off and didn't seem to stand a chance against Denmark's superb offense. Mikkel Hansen and Hand Lindberg hardly ever had a problem scoring through or over the Icelandic defense.

Denmark's shot efficiency was 72% but Iceland's only 57%. Anders Eggert and Gudjon Valur Sigurdsson, both teams' left wings, are the top scorers of Denmark and Iceland, both with 22 goals.
