The ‘Guerreras’, to close their tournament with victory and metal against Denmark

MADRID, Dec. 18 (.) –

The Spanish women’s handball team will face Denmark this Sunday (14:30 / Teledeporte) at the Palau d’Esports in Granollers with the bronze medal of the 2021 World Cup at stake, a historic appointment and a jackpot against another very tough rival .

The ‘Warriors’ have another final, like the one they lost to Norway on Friday, with a medal at stake in the first Women’s World Cup with Spain as host. Those of José Ignacio Prades will seek the third medal in a World Cup for Spanish women’s handball after silver two years ago and bronze in 2011.

A new metal and also at home can only taste gold to the Prades team, well surpassed by the powerful Norway in the semifinals. After a pristine road, seven out of seven in victories, the Nordics woke up the ‘Warriors’ from sleep and took revenge for the defeat two years earlier. Spain was left without a new final amid a generational change and also on the bench.

However, the feelings are good and what has been seen invites optimism, although Denmark will not make it easy either. The Danes, beaten by France in a tight semi-final, were one of the favorites for gold and are showing off an immense goal with Sandra Toft and Althea Reinhardt. It was precisely Lunde’s bolt that greatly embittered those of Prades in the semifinals.

Between the losses and the lack of effectiveness, Spain lost the good line in the tournament that has to be recovered against the Danes. From the defense and the claw, those of Prades will face another ‘ogre’ in the last confrontations. Denmark has beaten Spain in six of 10 official duels, of the 2014 European is the last Spanish, a trend that will be reversed to lift the bronze.

“The team is doing well and we face the game against with intact ambition. What we want is to finish our Championship well and do it in the best possible way: winning the medal. The team is really looking forward to having a great game against Denmark, you know. that the difficulty is going to be maximum, “said Prades in statements provided by the RFEBM.
