Sporting Bilt’s Emmen Falck has withdrawn “due to special circumstances” from the week of training and the training tournament with the Dutch national team.
This was announced by the NHV Handball Federation. According to a spokeswoman, Falk, who became the BN League’s top scorer last season, will not be called up as a substitute. National team coach Erlinger Richardson now has 20 players of his choosing. Falk, who comes from Barger-Oosterveld, previously played with Hurry-Up at Zwartemeer and E&O in Emmen.
The Dutch national team will train in Norway at the end of November in preparation for the 2022 European Championship. It will play the so-called Ginsedje Cup Golden League against the two largest countries, Denmark and Norway. Also participating is Olympic champion France. The Dutch national team qualified for the European Championship for the second time in history in May.
The European Championships will be held in Hungary and Slovakia from January 13-30. The orange team is ranked in Group B with Portugal, Hungary and Iceland and plays all group matches in Budapest.
