Even before the last group match, the German handball players will advance to the next round of the European Championship. They benefit from a Poland victory over Belarus. Now Tuesday is about winning the group.

EThe national coach saw a strong performance by goalkeeper Till Klimpke and an impressive performance by right winger Timo Kastening, who scored nine goals. But Alfred Gislason was not completely satisfied after the 34:29 (15:16) success in the second European Championship preliminary round game against Austria on Sunday evening.

Although the German handball players were still well on course with their second win in the second preliminary round, Gislason still saw potential for improvement, especially given the weak first half. “We’re still a bit concerned that we’ll never really be there from the start. This has to get a little better. Nevertheless, the positive outweighs it,” said the Icelander in Bratislava.
