As did Spain, Denmark won their three home friendly matches before the World Championship. The last Olympic champion ended the Bygma Cup with a strong success against Iceland (34-26), this Sunday in Aarhus, after those against Hungary (24-21) and Egypt (36-26). At half-time, the final gap was already guaranteed (19-11) and Jesper Noddesbo, brilliant in the second half, finished best scorer, with 6 goals. His team seems to be ready for their first game of Group D, friday against Argentina (20:45). The Icelanders will play on thursday against Spain (20:45), another title contender.
Before meeting Germany on friday (17.45), the Hungarians won 32-26 against the Egyptians, who will face Qatar on friday (14:00).
