Firer is in formal DHB

The circular runner from the Bundesliga HC Erlangen is initially ready in the home on call, but could be used at short notice by national coach Alfred Gílson. With the postnomination, Gílson responded to the failure of the injured circular runner Jannie Kohlbacher for the entire preliminary round.

In the case of a vacancy in the tournament course on this position, for which Captain Johannes Golda and Routine Patrick Johannes are scheduled, fires could immediately step in. Even goalkeeper Joel Film is on the list. Thus, Gílson can theoretically select 16 from 19 players for each game of the preliminary round. This circle can be increased to 20 at short notice via a so-called Late Entry. Both during the preliminary round and during the main and final rounds up to two changes from the 35er squad set in December are possible. For Kohlbacher, the chance will continue to encounter the German team.


The DUB selection denies her first preliminary round match on this Friday (18.00 pm / ARD) against Belarus. Further opponents in group D are Austria and Poland.
