Night and day as Russians get fifth place
Denmark - Russia 21-25 (16-12)
Russia was third at the World Cup after they in Sunday's second location battle defeated Denmark.
The digits reflects the difference between the two halves, as Denmark won the first half with 16-12 and lost the second with 13-5. Overall score in other words 25-21 to the Russians.
Before the break, it was especially top scorer Stine Jørgensen, who spearheaded a fresh Danish offensive with six goals. And in the target showed Rikke Poulsen again its high class behind a well-functioning defense.
But four target transfer does not necessarily hold long against a team of Russian quality.
Five times scored Russians in the first five minutes of the second half as the game turned on its head.
Five Danish scores was what it became after the break and with the scoring rate, it can be difficult to win the handball matches at the World Cup level.
Russia's top scorer with seven goals, the exciting young right-wing Anna Vyakhereva, was named the game play.
