After the semifinal between Norway and Germany on January 29th, the Norwegian team chose to deliver a protest to the EHF based on events in violation of regulations. According to this, a protest filed within an hour after the final whistle. This protest must then be followed up with arguments and documentation within 09.00 hrs the day after.
The Norwegian delegation saw Friday night a number of pictures and videos confirming that it was done wrong, without any concequence for Germany. These include too many players on the field at the same time, also including several goalkeepers. The real basis for a protest is therefore seen with Norwegian eyes definitely present, the Norwegian federation tells in a press statement sent out Saturday morning.
