Iceland’s men’s national handball team must win their match against Montenegro tomorrow in order to advance to the semi-finals of the 2022 European Handball Championships. Yet victory alone will not ensure their advance in the tournament: it is also dependent on Denmark beating France. Iceland’s team is currently in third place in Group I, with four points.
The men’s handball team started the tournament on a high note, winning all three of their matches in the preliminary round and advancing to the main round at the top of their group. The streak was interrupted by a COVID outbreak on the team just before Iceland’s match against world champion Denmark, which they lost 24-28. That was followed by a 29-21 victory against Olympic champions France on January 22 and a disappointing 22-23 loss to Croatia last night.
Iceland plays Montenegro tomorrow at 2:30 PM UTC.
