Spain claim Men’s 21 World Championship title

Spain have won the Men’s 21 World Championship for the first time in the nation’s handball history, beating Denmark 39:38 after extra time in the final in Algiers on Sunday.

For Spain’s 1996 generation of players it is the second title in a row after they also topped the podium at the Men’s 20 EHF EURO 2016 in Denmark.

France have claimed bronze with 23:22 against Germany, the silver medallists at the Men’s 20 EHF EURO last year.

Spain’s heroes of the final in Algiers were goalkeeper Xoan Ledo, who saved every Danish shot in the final three minutes of the match, and Daniel Dujshebaev, who scored the winning goal.

“This is something incredible, we won in such an epic way. We are in a dream right now,” Dujshebaev was quoted on the IHF website.

“He (Xoan Ledo) is the best goalkeeper of the World Championship. He played an incredible tournament. He has been playing like this for two years…He was amazing!”
