Let us show you the journey of all XPS teams through the tournament so far!

GERMANY

In 2007 Germany celebrated the World Championship title on home ground. At the 2019 event, they hope for the same extra power provided from the stands in Berlin, Cologne and hopefully Hamburg. The new coach Christian Prokop took over the team in 2017 from Dagur Sigurdsson, who had steered the Germans to the 2016 EURO title (the second one after 2004).

Results on the tournament:

Germany – 30:19 – Korea
Germany – 34:21 – Brasil
Russia – 22:22 – Germany
Germany – 25:25- France
Germany – 31:23 – Serbia

Croatia – 21:22 – Germany
Germany – 31:30 – Spain

NORWAY

With Christian Berge as Norway’s new head coach, they’ve been rising like a Phoenix. After missing the 2015 World Championship, Norway made it to the EURO 2016 semi-final, where they unluckily were beaten by later-on champions Germany after extra time.
