Iceland lost to Poland 35-33

Iceland lost to Poland by two goals after a very even and exciting game in the Handball World Championship in Germany last night.

According to Fréttabladid, Iceland’s coach Alfred Gíslason was disappointed with the results and said Iceland had made the wrong moves and not taken advantage of their opportunity to finish the game.

“We always had the opportunity to win and we were the stronger team during most of the game,” Gíslason told reporters after the match yesterday. “We were shooting at the wrong time […] and having trouble with the Polish attackers.”

In Gíslason’s opinion the referees had made just as many mistakes as his players. “I have often had these referees before, but they have never performed as poorly. There was no consistency in their judging.”

Icelandic shooter Logi Geirsson injured his shoulder in last night’s game. “I can feel that my shoulder is starting to swell up so now I’ll have to cool it down and have physiotherapy,” he said.

Iceland’s next game is against Slovenia tomorrow. “We’ll strike back and win Slovenia, there’s no question about it,” Geirsson said.
