The German handball national team will not withdraw from the European Championship for the time being despite further corona cases. Instead, national coach Alfred Gílson nominates three more players for the tournament in Slovakia and Hungary after DPA information.
Own Tobias Eichmann (Mt Messenger) as well as the back room David Schmidt and Lukas State (both Burnisher HC) will meet on Thursday to the team in Bratislava. Whether they are already used in the first main round lot on Thursday (18 o’clock / ARD) against defending champion Spain, but is still open. For this you would have to submit a negative PCR test before the kick-off.
As a spokesman of the DUB announced on Wednesday afternoon, Sebastian Haman, Christoph Steiner, Fibril M’dengue and a member of the function team were tested positive. Twelve players must pause, Gílson had already responded to the failures with several postnominations. On Wednesday morning, goalkeeper Daniel Reimann (fresh on Göttingen) as well as outside Patrick Viewer (TV Stuttgart) came to the team.
