22:00 – Summary of the meeting
The Blues did not tremble against Montenegro. After a somewhat shy start, the French handball team played against Montenegro, which sometimes returned the ball a little easily. The Blues were carried by Nikola Karabatic, elected man of the match, and by Dika Mem, author of 7 goals in 10 attempts. The meeting was marked by a double disqualification in the first half: Vasko Sevaljevic and Vincent Gérard both received a red card. But this event was not detrimental to the Blues: Wesley Pardin made a very good match with eight saves (33% success).

France won with a score of 36 to 27. The Blues did not shake and were hardly led in this meeting.
9:55 p.m. – While relaxed, Wesley Pardin makes a final stop

Mathieu Grébille, Melvyn Richardson or even Théo Monar have playing time at the end of the match. The clear lead of the Blues allows Erick Mathé to give his executives a little breather.
