One minute left in Giza!

Germany have the ball, are behind with one goal and are taking a break.

Is that exciting ...

55th minute:

Just under five minutes are left - a draw between the DHB team and Hungary.

Who can make a decisive difference here shortly before the end?

Very strong and above all important parade from Bitter, who fishes a concealed forearm throw from the corner.

Johannes Golla gets the whistle whistled and so the DHB team missed to pull away on two goals.

Bitter fends off a counter-attack with his head and is terribly upset about the Hungarian thrower.

And then there is also a German goalkeeper.
