Gdansk: Russia crushed Montenegro

EH EURO 2016, Poland

Group D, Gdansk

Russia –  Montenegro 28 – 21 (14 – 9)

Topscorers: Sergei Gorbok/Sergei Shelmenko(RUS) 5 goals each  and Vsko Sevaljevic (MNE)  4 goals

Russia had no problems against a tired Montenegrin team and defeated clearly the Balcanian team

Russian team, led by Torgovanov has sailed through the game and  even missing a bunch of penalties against eager Montenegrin goalkeepers Mijatovic and Mijuskovic, they won clearly and are going to the Main Round with two points they earned against Hungary.

Russian players shared the goals, Gorbok, Shlmenko, Dibirov, Chipurin and Atman were all scoring, Kireev had also an efficient day in the goal, meanwhile Montenegro had to play without injured Vuko Borozan – right wrist fracture in the previous match. One of the best Montenegrin players forced to the sideline was not helping Obradovic’s team in this match, and the predictions were correct, Russia gained the two points.

Final result: 28 – 21

Best player of the match: Sergey Gorbok (RUS) -backplayer
