Croatia takes the bronze
Seven unanswered goals in the first ten minutes of the second half turned what had been a fairly even and compelling match between beaten semi-finalists Croatia and Slovenia into a one-sided stroll. Croatia took it from 14:14 to 21:14 before eventually taking the match 31:26. Domagoj Duvnjak again top-scored for the Croats, this time with 9 goals.
Well done Spain for a fantastic and well deserved victory. I am however a bit confused by the fact that the tournament’s Most Valuable Player is Mikkel Hansen but he is not included in the Team of the Tournament which is Landin, Dibirov, Aguinagalde, Lindberg, Entrerrios, Duvnjak, and Nagy. Perhaps Most Valuable Player is determined by the value in wages that the owners of PSG are prepared to pay.
