Match for 5-8.places

Montenegro –  Denmark 20 – 28  (11-15)

Topscorers: Jovanka Radicevic and Milena Rajcevic (MNE) 4 goals each and Stine Jørgensen (DEN) 8 goals

  • Denmark has replaced a player before this game, goalkeeper Mette Sahlholdt is in the squad instead of  Anna Sofia Okkels. The main reason was Sandra Toft’s injury against Romania, when she received a ball in her face. She was uncertain before this game and headcoach Jörgensen did not want to start the match with only one goalkeeper.

Denmark started the game motivated and got calming advantage of five goals, 5 – 10. Montenegro was not able to put the ball behind a fantastic Rikke Poulsen, Adzic’s team seemed  to be tired and clueless in attack.

Denmark definitely wanted to give back something to their crowd,  showed a fluent play during first half and maintained to keep the gap wide.

Half time: 11-15.

Denmark has not slowed down in the second half either, 14-20 after 40 minutes of play. Rikke Poulsen made miracles in the Danish goal, Hasanic improved also, but Montenegro had problems mainly in attack.

Dragan Adzic gave up totally the victory and all his players got playing time.

Denmark’s right wing Anne Mette Pedersen got injured in a defending situation,  a rip over her right eye, she could not continue, maybe had to get some stitches.

Denmark continued to cruise on a wave and took the victory.

Final result: 20 – 28

Best player of the match: Rikke Poulsen (DEN)
