DHB team in preparation for EM | AD
Last December, the DHB women played their last game so far at the World Cup in Japan - and lost their Olympic ticket in the process. In the long break that followed, the focus was long on the European Championships in December, and the trial of strength with the World Cup champion served as a basis for determining the current situation.
The Groener team got off to an excellent start. Luisa Schulze scored the 4-1 in the seventh minute, the Netherlands took their first time-out. Germany benefited from a strong cover with a well-laid Dinah Eckerle between the posts.
Even a double shortfall and the resulting equalization to 6: 6 (11th) did not disturb the hosts. A short time later it was again 12: 6 (18th), because Germany was repeatedly successful after winning the ball by counterattacks. But that did not mean a preliminary decision.

The German team, which had already defeated the Netherlands at the World Cup in the main round, initially extended the narrow lead in the second half.

The Netherlands produced little danger from the backcourt without their top player Estavana Polman. 17 minutes before the end, the lead increased to five goals. Above all, Smits, who celebrated her comeback after a more than one year injury break, performed well. But it remained exciting.
On Saturday, Germany will meet its Dutch neighbors again at the same place ().
The European Championship will take place from December 4th to 20th in Denmark and Norway. The DHB women face co-hosts Norway, Poland and Romania in the preliminary round in Trondheim.
