Denmark imposes its hierarchy against Spain

Between Spain and Denmark there are never white glove matches. Where the two squads face each other there is intensity, rhythm, fight and sparks, and this time the Danish team won again (29-31), the world champion, against the third, Spain. Besides, Nikolaj Jacobsen’s squad was doing better in the game: the victory allows them to face the last game against Sweden with the option of winning this Euro Cup.

For Spain, the match had another reading: playing a top-level clash with other combinations on the track, and giving responsibility to players beyond the usual ones, and make debut to Javi Rodríguez (20) in the pivot.

Jordi Ribera tried the 5-1 with Odriozola advanced, and He attacked with the alternative of doing it without a goalkeeper with a 0-3 conceding in the first half. In the second he alternated a surprise attack, with two pivots (Serdio and Rodriguez) and with the goalkeeper in his post.

Spain had to overcome three goals, which Denmark scored (Lauge and Gidsel superb) in the first part. And he did it in three minutes midway through the second half: a 4-0 run with four stolen balls and counterattack.

The game began in the exchange of goals, but everything was spoiled with the exclusion of Odriozola two minutes from the limit that unbalanced everything in that final that seemed uncertain.
