- This result for Macedonia was not is not a coincidence, I know that they are for 3 or 4 years now playing in SEHA GSS League which has increased handball quality a lot. I was a coach in Germany and France and I can say SEHA has amazing quality, its one of the strongest Leagues in Europe today and it is visible here on WCh.
