After the convincing preliminary round, the German handball players continue in the main round of the World Cup.

The team of national coach Alfred Gislason will also play the next three games in the second phase of the tournament in Katowice.

Opponent: At the start, the DHB selection meets Argentina on Thursday (6 p.m.). On Saturday (8.30 p.m.) there will be a duel with the Netherlands, before Norway awaits the finale next Monday (8.30 p.m.).

Starting position: Germany takes the preliminary round victories against Qatar (31:27) and Serbia (34:33) into the main round. Like the DHB team, the Norwegians also have 4:0 points. The Netherlands and Serbia follow with 2:2 points each. Qatar and Argentina (both 0-4) no longer have a chance of reaching the quarter-finals.

Mode: The top two teams in each main round group advance to the knockout stages, where the quarter-finals continue. That is the declared goal of the DHB team.
