Hansen: “I expect a tough game against Germany”

Hansen: “I expect a tough game against Germany”

Timeout Magazine spoke to Danish superstar Mikkel Hansen after his side squandered a 3-goal lead in the last two-and-a-half minutes of the game against Sweden, which finished in a 28-28 draw. The PSG left-back wasn’t too happy about what happened at the end of the match, but wanted to shift the focus on what’s coming up rather than looking back too much.

“Sure, we lost a 3-goal lead, but there’s just no time to be disappointed. We have a game for a spot in the semifinal in less than 20 hours. It’s time to get a good night of sleep to be well rested for the match. I don’t think that we lacked concentration today. Everybody is professional enough and I guess everybody will now be focused enough on the game tomorrow against Germany and forget what happened today.”

The sharp-shooting Hansen expects the match against a young German side to be quite tough: “The German team was able to rest for three days, so it will be quite a tough game for us. That’s what I expect right now.” While the Danish team will move on with a tie against Germany, the Danes will miss the final round in Krakow in case of a loss and a Spanish win against Russia.
