The lack of freshness -did the 80 minutes against Norway take its toll?- to do their best handball. He almost never developed the necessary dynamics in the face of a challenge of the entity that always involves measuring himself against the Danes.

The first tactical compliment decided by Jordi Ribera gave a result that was temporary because Denmark did not take long to adapt. The second attempt was made by Pérez de Vargas with his saves. A third crashed into Nicklas Landin and Spain missed the boat for the final.
