Herculean task for Austria’s handball players against Iceland

“Anything is possible in handball, but realistically it will be very difficult to win by four or five goals in Iceland,” said team boss Ales Pajovic. “You saw how incredibly strong they are in one-on-one.” If they lose again, the men’s national team would miss a World Cup or European Championship finals for the first time since 2017.

The subsequent European Championship qualifiers are scheduled to start in mid-October with games against Ukraine, Romania and the Faroe Islands. Austria are seen in the group as a favorite for a finals ticket.
