All other news

For Dutch fans, Denmark against the Netherlands would be the "Dream Final" for Sunday, as many Dutch A-players are professionals in the Danish league. Also some juniors have already found their way there.

The Netherlands remained unbeaten after three Preliminary and two Main Round matches in Arnhem. Also their last game against Spain brought a narrow victory (29-26), even if the Dutch team’s motivation seemed clearly lower than in the clear victories over Austria, Ukraine, Norway and Romania, especially in defence play.

Sensation team Austria beat Romania 24:22 and secured second place in Main Round Group I.
Group II

Group winners Denmark denied Sweden access to the semi-finals, as the Swedish team was responsible for the 25-26 loss themselves as Sweden failed to score a penalty in the dying seconds of the match. Instead the Serbian team, who beat Croatia, finished ranked second in Main Round Group II.

In Arnhem, where the home team played, the stands were well-filled: on Sunday 1500 spectators came to support the juniors. Next year December the Dutch handball federation (NHV) will be organizing the Women's EHF EURO 2012.
