Main Round, Group I.

  • Sweden made a change, replacing Mathilda Lundstrom (rightwing) with a defender/backplayer from IK Savehof Elin Hallagård. The reason is that Swedens middle defender, Sabina Jacobsen has problems with her knees.
  • Montenegro qualified to the Main Round without point, Sweden came with two. The first half was controlled by Montenegro, the team of Per Johansson had a good defense and a fluent attack, where Radicevic, Mehmedovic and the play with the pivots worked very well.
  • In the second half, Montenegro did not seem to be done and continued the same eager handball, keeping their four-goal lead.
  • Daniela Gustin got injured (knee) after a fastbreak when she landed wrongly because of a push from Milena Raicevic
  • Montenegro defeated Sweden 28 – 30
