Iceland Loses against Montenegro in Handball Qualifier

The Icelandic national team in men’s handball lost by one goal, 24-25, against Montenegro in an away game in the 2016 Euro Qualifiers yesterday. Iceland were off to a better start, taking the lead 4-1, but Montenegro were quick to even the score, leading 14-12 at half time.

Iceland played poorly in the beginning of the second half but got their act together towards the end, scoring three goals in a row and being only one goal behind Montenegro when five minutes were left of the match, mbl.is reports.

The final minutes were exciting with Iceland twice getting the chance of a tie but ending up blowing them both and a victory for Montenegro was sealed.

Vuko Borozan proved Iceland’s toughest opponent, scoring ten goals, while Alexander Petersson scored the most goals for Iceland, eight.

Iceland and Montenegro both have two points in the qualifying group. Iceland beat Israel in their first 2016 Euro Qualifier in Reykjavík last week.
