Do you feel the temperature rising at this handball world championship? It was already fierce for more than a half in the quarter-final against Germany on Wednesday (35-28 in the end). There, we can already announce to you, without taking many risks, that it will be unbreathable until the end, during this semi-final against Sweden disputed this Friday (9 p.m.) in Stockholm. All the ingredients are there for a shock at the top: two huge undefeated teams in this World Cup, and a hell of a rivalry, with two knife clashes during the 2021 World Cup and Euro 2022, again in the semi-finals. The last two cleaver matches between these major nations of this sport had turned to the advantage of Sweden of Andreas Palicka, each time royal against the French. The PSG goalkeeper had notably repelled a decisive shot from Ludovic Fabregas during the half of Euro 2022 won by one goal (34-33) by his selection. Note that Sweden will be deprived of its playing master Jim Gottfridsson (broken index finger), which changes a lot of things. On the tricolor side, we hope to see in goal a Rémi Desbonnet as impressive as in the second half against Germany. Come on, we can’t wait to be there. See you soon friends.
