An eleven-goal victory in Tel Aviv
The Icelandic men’s handball team secured a convincing 37-26 victory against Israel at the Shlomo Group Arena in Tel Aviv, Israel, yesterday. As noted by Mbl.is, the Icelandic team had a 19-11 advantage at halftime and the victory was never in danger. Kristján Örn Kristjánsson was Iceland’s top scorer with six goals.
The victory means that the Icelandic team has qualified for the 2024 European Mens Handball Championship. If Iceland beats Estonia in Reykjavík on Sunday, the team will finish top of the group, and will, therefore, go into the tournament in Germany in the top strength category when the groups are drawn at the final tournament in Germany.
Iceland’s match against Estonia will take place in the Laugardalshöll arena in Reykjavík on Sunday at 4 PM.
