Croatia Loses In Extra-time And Will Play For The Bronze Medal Tomorrow

Total Croatia News

Croatia had the penalty shot for the win, but Torbjorn Bergerud saved Zlatko Horvat’s throw from the seven-meter line

The Cowboys didn’t make it. It was a thrilling game in Paris on January, 27. 2016, and it took 10 minutes of extra-time to get the finalist. Unfortunately for the Croatian fans, the Norwegian team finished on top, although Croatia had the perfect chance for the win after sixty minutes.

The clock ran out, and the referees awarded Croatia with a penalty shot after Musa’s shot was defended within the six-meter line. Zlatko Horvat, the best scorer for Croatia tonight stood up and took the shot, but it was not good enough.

In the extra-time, Croatia started better, but the Norwegians kept on pushing. As the Scandinavian coach Berge said, the plan for his team is simple. Running. A lot of running. And when his players get tired, he adjusts the tactics, so they run some more.

Croatia came short at the end, but the players seem focused on the tomorrow’s bronze medal match. The opponent will be Slovenia, and it should be the encounter of the old rivals, with a lot of emotion both on and off the court.

Croatia – Slovenia match is scheduled tomorrow 20.45 CET, and Norway will face French “experts” in the finals on Sunday.
