22:15 – The summary of France – Brazil
We did not necessarily expect this kind of performance from the French team for this start of Handball World Championship. Maltreated, the French team had difficulty making a difference against Brazilians who had nothing to lose. The first half was difficult with 20 minutes complicated without the Blues taking the lead. It is thanks to the inevitable Guigou that the Blues pass in the head and will not lose it anymore. Yet at the end of the first thirty minutes, the advantage was only three more. The start of the second period was perfect with a +5 advantage immediately after the break. But later, France had problems, a lot of trouble as evidenced by lost balloons (14). Vincent Gerrard, who kept France a safe distance in the first period, continued his exceptional game in the second half by stopping almost everything (50% of success) while the Blues failed to score (for eleven minutes). In the end, the honor is safe and the Azzurri win two goals, 24-22
Valentin Porte at beIN Sport's microphone: "We lost the boat after making the hole late in the first period, it was a first game, we knew it would not be very nice but we avoided the worst It's the essential, it's a atypical team, we have lost many balls against them and we will have to do much better in the rest of the competition ".
The Brazilian is elected man of the match. Vincent Gerrard may have had this trophy after an incredible performance.
A big sigh of relief for the French team coming out of this trap against Brazil. The men of Didier Dinar impose themselves on the forceps 24-22
The good news with an exclusion for two minutes on the side of Brazil while there is a minute in the meeting
The tension is enormous in this end of the game and Vincent Gerrard is stratospheric. New goalkeeper stop. Dead time for France while two minutes are missing. Probably the ball of the match.
Magic! Vincent Gerrard is incredible and is still coming out, almost 50 successful tonight.
N & # 39; Guessan makes a mistake and is ejected for two minutes. This is the fourth meeting for France and falls at the wrong time.
After a new ball lost on the side of the French team, Brazil has the opportunity to equalize, but once again Vincent Gerrard makes the right stop and saves France. Valentine's Gate marks the next action. Plus two, while Brazil takes a break.
