SG Flensburg-Handewitt (GER) vs. El-Jaish Sports Club (QAT) 27:17 (15:6)


After the disaster from the semi-final SG Flensburg-Handewitt presented a better placement match for rank three and also with the presence of Thomas Mogesen. The playmaker was injured the day before. From the beginning on the winner of the European Champions league played highly concentrated in defence. Based on that and with strong goalkeeper Matthias Andersson the Germans took the lead after 15 minutes and from that point on they made a lot of easy goals with fast break. El-Jaish played brave but without a realistic possibility to bring the favourite in trouble. After 30 minutes the match was pre-decided. After the break Flensburg-Handewitt played differently than during the match before well concentrated too and with their strong performance the Germans destroyed the last hope of El-Jaish for a comeback. Finally Flensburg won and saved rank three. The Army Club from Doha finished on the fourth rank.

Ljubomir Vranjes (coach from Flensburg): I’m satisfied with my team today. We played well and for me it was an experience to see how it works with playmaker Thomas Mogesen. Finally we go home with the third place and a lot of new impressions. I wish our host all the best for the World Championship.

Zoran Kastratovic (coach from El Jaish): It is difficult to resume the match. It was our third match against a European top team within four days. Flensburg acted great in defence and made it difficult for us to found a way to the goal.

Hampus Wanne (player from Flensburg): Our defence was the way to victory. It was our best performance during the tournament and the victory was well deserved.

Mahmoud Osman (player from El-Jaish): After the match against Flensburg during the preliminary round we were hoping for a surprise. But today Flensburg was stronger than the last days and there was no chance for us to win the match. Finally we are not unsatisfied with rank four.
