The second half brought a more hungry Denish team in the start, they turned the game, but Montenegro was not thinking to give up or stop, helped by goalkeeper Mijatovic and lineplayer Grbovic – chiping in seven by seven, they worked themselves back into the game, keeping it tight and exciting until the end.
Denmark won at the end, by a more experienced squad, but Montenegro made an impressive performance, they totally deserved at least one point.
Final result: 28 – 30
