In the first semi-final at Men ’S EHF championship, Italy convincingly beat Switzerland. The Swiss managed to level the score four times during the first half, but still Italy won 15-11.
After the break, the gap became even more significant. There were some episodes, when the Italians led by eight goals, but finally finished with a six- goal advantage.
Italian goalkeeper Collelouri got the title of the man of the match, whereas Wanner was named the best from Switzerland.
Andrea Colleluori (Italy, GK): The important thing was the victory of the team and not how we played individually, we achieved a lot in this championship. Playing with the whole team is important. I would rate my teams’ game with an 11 out of 10.
Levin Wannner (Switzerland, RW): We started playing well, both of teams scored good goal and were good in defence. After the brake we got tired and our defence got worse and we couldn’t score many goal. I would rate my teams game with a 5 out of 10
