  2. So let's see what we have... Group I 4 pts (ECh 3rd) 3 pts (ECh 10th) 2 pts (ECh 5th) 2 pts (already qualified for the Olympics) 1 pts (ECh 8th) 0 pts (ECh 11th) Group II 4 pts (ECh 2nd) 4 pts (ECh 12th) 2 pts (ECh 9th) 2 pts (ECh 6th) 0 pts (ECh 4th) 0 pts (already qualified for the Olympics) I guess Hungary still has a chance if Russia, Netherlands, Norway and Sweden don't flop in the main round.
  3. And that's it for France. Which very likely means that the teams has to finish in the Top8 to get a OQT spot, maybe even Top7 if Korea flops in the main round.
  4. I just hope that this is the end for Kim Rasmussen in Hungary, and we will continue with Vladimir Golovin as the coach of the national team. He knows this new generation of Hungarian players more than anyone and he won two gold medals with them at the U19 ECh and U20 WCh in the last two years.
  5. Yeah, as I told you, this team wasn't ready for the WCh and for Tokyo. Maybe 4 years later.
  6. As it was expected, (and I think it already became clear a couple of days ago) Asia is the 2nd best continent, so will be at the OQT. If everything goes as expected, and Korea doesn't win the WCh, this is how the groups will look like. Tournament 1 WCh 2nd WCh 7th Tournament 2 WCh 3rd WCh 6th ECh2 Tournament 3 WCh 4th WCh 5th ECh1
  7. They are in a terrible situation with their ECh 8th place and likely elimination at the WCh group stage. They have to beat France to survive and that's not an easy task to say the least.
  8. So if everything goes as expected, this is how the Main round would look like... Group I (ECh 5th) (ECh 3rd) (ECh 11th) (already qualified for the Olympics) (ECh 10th) (already qualified for the Olympics) Group II (ECh 12th) (ECh 9th) (ECh 4th) (ECh 2nd) (ECh 6th) One of these (I am guessing European) teams will qualify with the WCh gold, or if France wins, Russia will qualify with their ECh 2nd place. Which means that we have 8 European teams for the 6 OQT spots (I kinda doubt that Japan will reach the Top8). I guess Hungary still has a chance even if we don't reach the Top12 here with out ECh 7th place if the 4 teams who finished behind us there won't take more than two OQT spots here. The only bigger handball nation who can already be pretty much eliminated from the Olympic qualification after the group stage is Denmark, if they won't beat France.
  9. Well, it looks like this younger Hungarian team just wasn't ready for this WCh. It's definitely not ready for Tokyo. Maybe for Paris...
  10. Damn, I would have never expected Korea to be this good after the Seoul Cup, they legitimately have a shot at finishing in the Top8.
  11. I wouldn't call it that surprising. The core of our team is from Ferencváros who had a pretty mediocre/bad fall season, and as I have already said, the match against Kazakhstan already gave us some signs that we are far from our top form. When the older players like Kovacsics, Tomori and Kovács, plus our best player at the last ECh (Háfra) are all visibly struggling, we are pretty much fucked.
  12. Well, this was just terrible. Tokyo is really far away from us right now.
  13. I told you that this Hungarian team can have same pretty bad days, and today we are simply terrible so far. Some of the key players like Háfra continue to be mediocre at best at this WCh and that's just not enough against the stronger teams.
  14. BRA v FRA 19 - 19 Group B is sure getting interesting. The World and European champions played two matches against non-European teams, and only have 1 point.
  15. That France v Portugal is the best match Budapest could have hoped for to host. But yeah, this will be 3 losses for us if we qualify.
