We are certainly in for a thrilling second half. Let's see if EHF journalist Courtney Gahan agrees with that: "Stine Oftedal turned up ready to play today alright! The centre back scored all of Norway’s goals from the field up to the 23rd minute, mostly from a wicked ground shot snuck through the defence low at the hip, and drew many penalties converted by Nora Mørk. Beating this in-form France goalkeeper Cleopatre Darleux is difficult for sure, and the best chance seems to be these invisible shots that Oftedal is proving so adept at putting away.
18:24 HALF-TIME | DENMARK VS MONTENEGRO 14:10 What a battle in the first half! Montenegro off to a flying start, but Denmark keeping their cool and carving out a four-goal lead. Here is EHF journalist Courtney Gahan again: "The best defence is designed to keep the middle of the court tight and push opponents to shoot from the narrowest angles on the wings. Denmark have brought their great defence to this match — the problem was that Montenegro had Jovanka Radicevic waiting to deliver in the corner. At least, that was the problem early on. The start of the game was the Radicevic and Djurdjina Jaukovic show, as the two combined for all six of Montenegro’s goals as they took the lead, with Jaukovic finding some great outside chances when the defence did not step up fast enough.

But after Montenegro enjoyed their very strong start, Denmark started to favour more long-range shots on the back court and also found gaps in the defence to rapidly come back and take the advantage.

2022 European Curling Championships: How to watch - preview, schedule and stars in actionThe 2022 European Curling Championships are heading to Ã–stersund, Sweden from 18-26 November for a bumper few days of action. The menâ€™s and womenâ€™s championships will take place simultaneously meaning the Ã–stersund arena will host double the competition. With the results of the Beijing 2022 Olympic Winter Games sitting in the backdrop just how the 20 teams will fare will be a point of intrigue. Both events will adopt the same format.
Montenegro’s successes in the competition are more recent: they are in their third semi-final at the EHF EURO after winning one in 2012, when they went on and secured the trophy, and losing one two years later. 17:21 Before we take a closer look at the teams playing the first semi-final at 17:45 CET, here are the rules in case this match, or the second semi-final later today, ends in a draw after the regular 60 minutes' playing time. First, there will be an extra time played of two times five minutes.
The teams are currently warming up here in Stožice Arena, throw off in just under 40 minutes from now. Good to see Montenegro back Milena Raicevic on court, since she was doubtful with an injury but apparently fit now to play in the semi-final. 16:52 A special match for Jamina Roberts, who has become the outright No. 1 on the list of Swedish internationals with most matches at the EHF EURO: 48, now one clear of Isabelle Gulldén. This and more in the match review written by Courtney Gahan: 16:39 Two teams that came to the EHF EURO for at least the semi-finals, but missed them.

Just as in the menâ€™s competition Swedenâ€™s women will be out for revenge in Ã–stersund. Two-time European champion (2018, 2019) Hasselborg was denied a three-peat by Muirhead last year in Lillehammer, and after falling short of defending her Olympic gold earlier this year in Beijing 2022. She will arrive in Ã–stersund with two new team members looking to improve on her international record. Also in the title-hunt will be reigning world champions Switzerland and Italy. Swiss skip Silvana Tirinzoni will return to the ice with the same rink that saw her claim her third world title earlier this year, posing a sizeable threat to all challengers gathering in Sweden.
