Group D, Gdansk

Montenegro –  Denmark 28 – 30 (16 – 14)

Topscorers: Nemanja Grbovic (MNE) 7 goals and Anders Eggert (DEN) 6 goals

The young Montenegrin team caused lot of troubles to one of favourites, Denmark. Landin was benched of Balcan scorings, Mikkel Hansen couldn’t do much in offense. The match was close during the first half, Montenegro was in lead 16-14, Gudmundsson had a job to do in the pause.

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
