Norway vs Sweden in handball EC – NRK Sport – Sports news, results and broadcast schedule

– Katrine is at her best towards the end as we go. He had some crazy saves that were inspiring and motivating, a satisfied Norwegian national team coach told NRK after the game.

Katrine Lunde was named the best player on the court at the Stožice Arena.

– He has a penchant for kissing when it really matters, and he shows it here, says NRK expert Marit Malm Frafjord about Lunde’s appearance.

Malm Frafjord believes Lunde has been the big difference between the teams in the second half:

– He had some important and good saves. And not so long ago, the chance was 100%.

Praised by teammates

The best player on the field responded to the post-match tribute rather calmly:

– That’s heavy. Personally, I wasn’t completely satisfied with my own tactics, but luckily I got some important saves at the end.

Lunde’s Swedish team-mate on the Vipers, Jamina Roberts, was clearly disappointed after the match, but praised the Norwegian goalkeeper:

– Katrine had a period where she actually died, and made it very difficult for us.

The Norwegian team-mates also impressed:

– You never cease to be impressed. On the one hand we can’t count on that, even though we know the goalkeepers we have are good but they are as good as they are in all the games now absolutely fantastic, Henny Reistad told NRK.

Sweden’s top scorer

Sweden worked hard from the start and Norway was punished by their neighbors’ high pace.

– There’s a lot of speed. Both teams ran and were very excited to run. There was a lot of pressure and duels throughout the match. So we have to face it and show strength,” Ragnhild Valle Dahl told NRK during the break.

Jenny Helen Carlson was a six-goal first-half huge, and the Norwegian defense struggled to stop her. In total, he scored nine goals and was the top scorer of the night.

At the break the score was tied, 13-13.

– Lots of lies in stopping Jenny Carlson. “He can do what he wants in Sweden’s attacking game, and Norway has to follow suit a bit,” Malm Frafjord said during the break.

The Norwegian women pulled it off, and Henny Reistad is Norway’s top scorer with seven goals.

– I think we are in a good position in the game. We managed to be patient. We are good at using our time, but at the same time playing with our own pace and identity. Nor will we be without Katrine, who really characterized the match, Reistad told NRK.

It was also good that Nora Mørk continued her perfect streak from seven meters and Sweden’s Nathalie Hagman missed two penalties at Silje Margaretha Solberg.

– Sweden is certainly one of the teams with the fastest pace. It feels good, Nora Mørk told Viaplay after the game.

In the Norway timeout in the 59th minute, Mørk called on the team to calm down:

– We had to try to calm down a bit, and in the end it was cool. It’s very tasty and a lot of fun with the win.

– It’s good to get a win after a tough game, said Thorir Hergeirsson.
