Handball World Cup: Nikola Karabatic available for the final


The Frenchman is on the score sheet for the World Championship final against Denmark this Sunday evening.

Nikola Karabatic is on the score sheet for the World Championship final.

This is the information to remember just under an hour before kick-off between France and Denmark (9 p.m., live on TF1 and BeINSPORT).

The star of the Blues, in search of a 5th individual title, will be at least on the bench of the France team.

Guillaume Gille has chosen to leave two players in the stands: Thibaud Briet who still suffers from the right hand and the third goalkeeper Charles Bolzinger.

For ten days, the star of the Blues has been handicapped by a foot injury.

It remains to be seen whether, unlike the semi-final, the triple Olympic champion will enter the game. If he said Ok to his coach for such an important match, it is because he feels fit to play, even not long.

That's a pretty good sign.

We will know from the kick-off how much.

If the Parisian is in the major 7, everything is fine.

In this case, we will then be entitled to the duel of the two stars of this game: Karabatic against Mikkel Hansen.

The two legends of the world handball, center half or left back, the only two players to have been voted best player in the world three times (2007, 2014 and 2016 for Karabatic; 2011, 2015 and 2018 for Hansen).

The two men met on Saturday at breakfast in the Stockholm hotel where the two selections reside.

“When I meet “Mikki”, I meet a friend, we discuss everything except handball”, admits the Frenchman.

No matter the outcome of the final, the respect between the two will always be there.
