The use of French superstar Nikola Karabatic in the foreplay of the Handball World Cup against Germany’s co-host on Tuesday remains open.
“If he is on the bench, that would be great. But we don’t know yet,”said Coach Guillaume Gille after 34:23 (17:16) against Korea in Berlin.
The three-time world handballer Karabatic had been operated on at the left foot three months ago and had actually cancelled his World Cup participation. Last Saturday, the 34-year-old suddenly joined the team.
“He seems fit and ready. The only question is when to use Niko,”said Gille.
