Whatever the result of the final versus France, the men’s Norway team has already achieved their best performance ever in an international tournament. But a win could take them to a new dimension, following in the footsteps of Norway women’s team.

The Norwegian ladies are indeed experts in terms of success. Over the last 20 years, they won three World Championships (1999, 2011 and 2015), seven European Championships (1998, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2010, 2014 and 2016) and two Olympic gold medals (2008 and 2012). Currently, World and European title holder, the Norway women’s team is obviously an inspiring influence on Sander Sagosen and his teammates.
