Women’s EHF EURO 2018 draw held in Paris

The Women’s EHF EURO 2018 draw took place on Friday 21 April to determine the playing groups from which 28 teams will compete for 15 places at the final tournament in France. Seven-time champions and current title holders Norway will play from Group 1, facing Croatia, Ukraine and Switzerland over the course of six rounds played in September and October 2017, March 2018, and May and June 2018.

 

The top two teams from each group and the best-ranked third-placed team proceed to the final tournament in November and December 2018, for which France are automatically qualified as hosts. Two of the 28 teams to vie for places at the 13th Women’s EHF EURO are still to be determined, as Finland, Faroe Islands, Greece, Israel, Kosovo and Georgia will play Qualification Phase 1 in June with the winners of each group proceeding to Phase 2.

The playing groups for Qualification Phase 2 are as follows:

Group 1: Norway, Croatia, Ukraine, Switzerland
Group 2: Montenegro, Poland, Slovakia, Italy
Group 3: Sweden, Serbia, FYR Macedonia, winners of Qualification Phase 1 Group A
Group 4: Romania, Russia, Austria, Portugal
Group 5: Denmark, Czech Republic, Slovenia, Iceland
Group 6: Spain, Germany, Turkey, Lithuania

Lithuania stuck in probably the hardest group with Norway and France, but still fighting honourably, Lithuania vs Belgium is a must win on the 7th.

[SPOILER ALERT]

 

 

Congrats to RK Vardar https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RK_Vardar for winning the EHF Champions League! :o

Vardar is a Macedonian handball team and the sport is quite big in Macedonia, but they have never won the biggest European tournament in men's competition.

Matches with English commentary (the guy is crazy, it's amazing) can be seen live at ehf.tv

In the semi-final they beat 9-time European champions Barcelona 26-25 with a top corner goal with 4 seconds to go :yikes:

 

 

And in the final, PSG equalised with 7 seconds to go but PSG had put all their players up the field (including goalkeeper), so Vardar could throw the ball up the court into the goal and they would guarantee the win. You don't see this in the video below but the team coach accidentally called a time-out, meaning they would have to score within 7 seconds from the half-way line! And then this happened:

 

 

Obviously when they returned to Macedonia, it was a bit crazy:
