Germany/Denmark 2019

Main Round, Group II

Herning, Jyske Bank Boxen

  • Both Hungary and Denmark are struggling with injuries in their squads
  • Hungary lost Balogh, Jamali, and Bodo, therefore youngsters like Mathe and Szita has been a part of the team
  • Rene Toft Hansen is also injured, but his brother Henrik Tof Hansen just came back from injury. Rightback Ørris has also a smaller injury, he did not play tonight
  • The hall in Hernig is sold out
  • In the first half, Denmark controlled the game, Mikkel Hansen and Rasmus Lauge were to remark, but Landin had a bad day and was replaced by Jannick Green in the goal, who became the player of the match
  • Hungary started with Lekai, Nagy, Banhidi but during the match, the reserves got a lot of playing time, and it seems like the Hungarian head coach tried to rest his key players for the next matches in the Main Round. Hungarian newcomers and reserves made a good second half, winning 12-10, but they did not manage to knock the code against a fantastic Green in the Danish goal

Referees: Schulze, Tonnies (GER)
