The French team will finish the 1st round of the World Cup tonight by facing the Swiss team, invited at the last minute after the defection of the American team following many positive cases of Covid-19. The band at Andy Schmid is far from a small team. The metronome of the Rhein Neckar Löwen and his teammates proved it by winning from the outset against the Austrian team after they had landed on the Egyptian tarmac just 4 hours before the kick-off of the match.
This is what confirms the assistant coach of the Blues, Erick Mathé, on the federal site: “In this first phase with three matches, we expected to face the USA. This opposition would have allowed us to rotate our workforce amply. Finally, we will face Switzerland with the challenge of first place in the group and all the expected points. Switzerland is an opponent to be taken seriously with in particular Andy Schmid, a world-renowned player who handles the 7 against 6 wonderfully, very skilful in the pass with his pivots and in the shoot. There is also Lenny Rubin, a great left-back who plays in Germany (at HSG Wetzlar), a very good long-range shooter. The Swiss team has some good qualities to showcase.
Last game for the Blues of @FRAHandball before connecting to the main tower 🤞
