Handball World Cup 2023: France beats Germany (35:28) and qualifies for the semi-finals

The French team beat Germany (35:28) this Wednesday in the quarterfinals of the Handball World Championship. The Blues meet Sweden in the semifinals on Friday.

A match won in pain. After a half-time draw (16:16), the Blues finally managed to defeat Germany on Wednesday, January 25, in the quarter-finals of the Handball World Championship in Gdansk (Poland). The 35-28 victory was largely due to the outstanding performance of substitute goalkeeper Rémi Desbonnet.

The Montpellier player, who started the quarter-hour in place of Vincent Gérard, quickly showed all his qualities and made a first save just eight minutes later. He then chained two consecutive saves against Patrick Groetzki (29th), starting alone against him.

After the break, the substitute goalkeeper was almost impassable for almost ten minutes (34:43) and scored seven out of eight saves. Five minutes before the end, he secured the win with two saves in a row. In total, Rémi Desbonnet will have recorded 14 stops.

Defeated by German goalkeeper Andreas Wolff early in the game (50% success in shooting only), the Blues managed to score before half-time before continuing in the second part and distancing their opponent.

The reigning Olympic champion meets Sweden in the semifinals at home in Stockholm on Friday.
