Norway is already qualified to the semifinal, so they will for sure use the last match in the Main Round to practice those elements of the game which are not perfect or they mean that it has to be improved.
The Czech Republic can also play a match without any pressure, only motivation could be to finish the tournament with a good game in their pocket and improve their handball for the future. Czechs did a player replacement: Martina Weisenbilderov (left back) was replaced by Martina Crhova (goalkeeper).Czech
The Czech Republic started well the game, staying close to Norway, not letting Nora Mørk and company to get too big advantage. Silje Solberg had some good saves in the goal, but Czech decided to make a good match here and they made fastbreak goals and had a good defence. Michaela Hrbkova was the top scorer for the Czechian team with four and Vilde Ingstad with five for Norway. The half ended 17 – 18.
In the second half started a totally new match and this match Norway had the main role, the opponent was only a statist. Silje Solberg built a wall in front of the Norwegian goal, the Czech Republic managed to score only seven goals in thirty minutes, meanwhile Norway ran over their opponent: Herrem, Frafjord, Mørk, Skogrand or Kurtovic all scored and the match ended with a big difference.
