Idehn pushed Sweden to earn a point against hosts


Main Round, Group I – Nantes

  • Sweden was in lead for all the first half, France could not come near, mostly due to Filippa Idehn in the Swedish goal
  • In the second half France managed to come closer, but the French offensive system still seemed inefficient against a high-performing Idehn
  • 18-16 was the frozen result, where France did not score for more than 10 minutes and Sweden had the chance to increase the lead, but they also failed in the attack
  • After a timeout from Krumbholz Sweden made 19-16, but Lacrabere, Kanor, and Houette managed to put the ball finally back Idehn and the match seemed to be alive again
  • Sweden got the lead twice at 20-19, 21-20 but Kanor equalized again.
  • The match ended a draw, the first game actually in the EHF EURO ending with a draw
  • Player fo the match: Filippa Iden (SWE)
