The German handball juniors are in the final of the U21 World Cup. Coach Martin Heuberger's team beat Serbia in the semifinals on Saturday in Berlin by 40:30 (17:15). Opponent in the final on Sunday (6 p.m. / Eurosport) is Hungary, who previously won 37:30 (19:14) against Iceland. The best German thrower in front of the 5206 spectators was Captain Renars Uscins from TSV Hannover-Burgdorf with nine goals.
At 9:5 in the 14th minute, the German team had pulled clear for the first time. Goalkeeper Lasse Ludwig acted strongly. In addition, the Serbian defense specialist Luka Rogan saw the red card from the Algerian referees after a too hard challenge against Nils Lichtlein (18th). Initially, however, Germany was not able to really benefit from this. At 13:13 (26th) Serbia had equalized again.
The Heuberger team then came out of the break highly concentrated. In the 40th minute, Uscins increased the lead to 26:20 and set the course for victory. Only Milos Kos could keep up with the Serbs. But even the nine goals of the powerful backcourt player were not enough to jeopardize Germany's well-deserved entry into the final.
