Don't know. The Handball World Cup wasn't even on any German tv station (not a joke). But you can watch the 4th soccer division live.

I always wanted to know somebody from Katar, the only nation Germany lost against at the last Handball World Cup. 8-) :lol:
But I doubt a 20:21-loss is called "a trashing".

Look at the world ranking in July. Teams ranked 1-10 have to play one team from 11-20 (they don't play in a regular competition) away the next year. 11-20 play 21-30 away and so on. Yes, it really is that simple.

I'm not from Qatar but from France. And vu thrashing, I was refering tout the last decade results... :) France - Germany games were my favorites !

Quite surprise tout hear that handball doesn't have media interest. Here you are seen as a top nation, with a powerful league, great players and rich history as inventors of the sport.

Of course there is a big support for the german national handball team. Whoever claims something else has not been to Gummersbach, Minden, Melsungen or any place where the local handball team attracts more sponsors, spectators and government grants than soccer does. The reason behind the lack of TV coverage is the greed of the IHF (International Handball Federation). They even made Germany get a wildcard once, when they didn't qualify, to obtain german money. But that's nothing new to me. Everyone whines about FIFA, but in comparison, soccer has clear rules concerning qualifiers... no wildcard bullshit, that is seen (almost) everywhere else: Handball, Volleyball, Basketball.
Rugby is another thing: giving the supposed weaker team one shot in an away fixture is still better than just giving wildcards to someone, because their pockets are filled with something valuable

I know. I was just joking around with vino93, who claimed that France was trashing Germany in handball, when Germany has only lost one game (20:21 against Quatar) in the last tournament (and yeah is the European champion)
Rey200 described perfectly, why it wasn't on TV.
