Today the Icelandic handball team meets Russia in its firs game of the world championship held in Spain from January 11th to January 27th and the expectations are running high. In Iceland handball is a popular sport and especially after the great success in the Olympics in Peking 2008 where the Icelandic national team delivered home the silver price. Russia was Iceland's first opponent in the Olympics 2008 so we hope for the same result from Iceland's first game this year.. The match starts at 18:00 Icelandic time for those interested in watching. We wish all the best to the Icelandic team playing in the world championship in Spain 2013 with high expectations.
