After the second tournament defeat within 24 hours, Germany's handball players only have minimal chances of making it into the semi-finals of the European Championship.

The DHB selection, weakened by eleven Corona failures, lost to Norway 23:28 (12:14) on Friday evening and no longer has progress in the main round group II with 2:4 points in their own hands.

In front of 2026 spectators in Bratislava, captain Johannes Golla was the best scorer in the team of national coach Alfred Gislason with four goals.
