The team of national coach Alfred Gislason took a good day in the draw of the group opponents in Giza, Egypt. Probably the strongest opponent comes from Europe.
The German handball players have been given a solvable task for the preliminary round of the 2021 World Cup in Egypt. The DHB selection plays in group A against European ninth place Hungary, Uruguay and the African representative Cape Verde. That was the result of the draw on Saturday evening in Giza.
The first finals in history with 32 teams will take place from 13 to 31 January next year. At which of the four locations the team of national coach Alfred Gislason will hold the preliminary rounds, it has to be decided on Sunday.
The first three teams of each of the eight preliminary round groups will reach the main round, which will continue in four groups of six. This is followed by the knockout phase with quarter-finals, semi-finals and the medal games.
