Qualification eliminations round, World Championship Qatar 2015

Austria, Czech Republic, Russia, Poland, Belarus, Macedonia, Slovenia, Sweden and Bosnia on the World Championship in Qatar 2015.

In one of the most interesting qualification duels, Serbia managed to loose 8 goals advantage and suffered the biggest defeat in the first day of second lag of the qualification round for World Championship Qatar 2015. Bad day for Serbian team, and bad day for Serbian coach Matic who is no longer head coach of the national team.

Austria made the second surprise, in Norway they defended the two goal advantage they had from the first lag. After 60 minutes played in Arena Sotra, Norway played tied game and the score 28-28 was not enough to stop Austrian celebration.
