Croatia Set Up Quarter Final Match Up With France

Croatia have set up a tantalizing quarter-final match up against old foes France at the World Handball Championships in Spain after easily defeating Belarus in the 2nd round 33:24.

Croatia’s coach Slavko Goluza decided to rest a handful of key players once the result was in the bag at half-time. France have been Croatia’s downfall at recent tournaments, including the semi-final at the Olympic Games in London last year. The quarter-final match is to be played on Wednesday.
