Bronze medal for Spain

Bronze medal for Spain

Spain won the medal after a highly tensioned match, decided with the final whistle.  It was the first medal at World Championships for the Spaniards since their title ion 2005.
 
Bronze final: Sweden – Spain 23:24 (11:11)
The Iberians danced on the field, as the World Championship host was highly disappointed after this Bronze final thriller. The game was absolutely close from the first to the last minute, especially thanks to great goalkeeping performances on both sides by Arpad Sterbik (Spain) and Johan Sjöstrand (Sweden). It took 28 minutes before Sweden was in lead with two goals for the first time (10:8). But this lead didn’t last long, as the Spaniards equalized within 30 seconds right before the halftime whistle.
 
Right after the re-start  the Iberians took the control and went away with a three goals difference thanks to a goal of Juanin Garcia. But then the loud and frenetic support of the more than 12.000 spectators gave wings to the host – and in minute 54 Jonas Källman equalized again. Even as the final six minutes were an absolute thriller Sweden wasn’t able to turn the result completely. 60 seconds before the end Spain scored the 24:22, but the 24:23 of Jonas Lärholm was the last goal of the game, as Spain was clever enough to “survive” the last 30 seconds. Top scorer was Källman with six goals.

UPDATE : Swedish fans repeat their neighbours but in a softly way -> its not nice watching a winning Spain and swedish fans that ignore the winner in a worst way I ever saw !!!! Danemark fans showed how to be stupid .... fair play as it is known in scnadinavian countries doesnt exist . Barbie pseudo fairness died(well it doesnt mean the danish crew is same build but it explain their head functionality). Hope these ppl will burn in hell !!!!! go FRANCE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You right Hans : it happened in the match Danemark - Poland 28:27 as the danish fans whistle along playing the polish national anthem. That is not fair though the teams, means the men are very friendly people who respect each other even the opponent. So the danish crew is ok but their fans are really, really bad example for this SPORT. I ensure you it would never happen in Poland or Germany or France but the fact is it happens in a Scandinavian country where other Scandinavian country played.
