Bjarte Myrhol: “They were not better than us…”

Christian Berge, Norway-headcoach:

” I am really disappointed about the result. The team fought and every player did all their best and gave everything for victory,so I am very pleased with the effort. It’s a little disappointing right now that we do not get the spot in the final. We lost in a close game and I promise that we will work hard to be prepared for the bronze final on Sunday.”

“It’s a little disappointing right now that we do not get the spot in the final. We lost in a close game and I promise that we will work hard to be prepared for the bronze final on Sunday.”

Bjarte Myrhol,Norway- lineplayer:

“It was a fifty-fifty match where small thing determined the result at the end. I think we should have taken it in the first sixty minutes.

“We mobilized all we had of powers and energies and there was not one single player among us who did not give everything, but it was Germany’s way to the final. They were not better than us. I do not think they think it either. ”

Erlend Mamelund, backplayer-Norway:

“I think we deserved more today. I think we were very  severely punished by the referees. It is difficult to play ten minutes more with less playerrs on the court than your opponent. It might be justified, but it feels unfair right now…”

Sander Sagosen, Norway -playmaker:

” There are very small things which can be decisive in men handball, today was not meant to be, even all of us wanted with all our energies to get into the final. Disappointing to finish the semifinal with one goal loss, but now we have to look forward, shake off this game and go into the bronze match to get the first Norwegian medal ever. It will be enough motivation for all of us.”
