Another final for Denmark after Nielsen’s big half

Germany impressed in the first half against Denmark and had a 14–12 lead after 30 minutes. In the second half, Emil Nielsen replaced Niklas Landin and Denmark won the game 29–26.

The first half from Germany was special. The played like the bad boys from 2016 and Denmark looked a bit cell shocked. And it off coursed helped Germany that Andreas Wolff outplayed Niklas Landin, which meant a 14–12 lead for there Germans after 30 minutes.

At the break the Danish coach Nikolaj Jacobsen decided to do two changes: bringing on Emil Nielsen to replace Landin, and to start playing 7–6 with Mikkel Hansen as the playmaker. That meant that Germany hardly scored in the second half and that Germany could not play as aggressively as they did during the first 30 minutes.

Danmark eventually won the game, 29–26, and can look forward to a new final on Sunday.
