Belarusian national handball team occupies third place at international tournament in Polish Lublin

In the final match, the Belarusians lost, after a tough struggle, to the Russian team — 29:31. Boris Pukhovsky scored 8 goals: the most for the squad. On the way to the final, Yuri Shevtsov’s trainees were beaten by the Poles — 22:27 — and defeated the Czech squad — 31:23.

Because of health problems, Sergey Rutenko, the leader of the Belarusian national team (who usually plays for Spanish Barcelona) was absent in Lublin, as were Alexander Titov (Zaporozhye Motor) and Vyacheslav Shumak (HC Brest Meshkov).

The tournament is one of the most important stages in preparing for the 2015 World Championship play-offs. The first away match, against the Montenegrin squad, is scheduled for June 7th or 8th —while the return will be in Belarus, either on June 14th or 15th.

National squads from Spain, France, Denmark and Croatia already have places in the final of the 24th Men’s World Handball Championship — scheduled for January 2015 in Qatar.
