Short IHF review of the players:
Like Gullden, Dutch centre back Nycke Groot is the creative leader for her national team’s attack. In 2017, she played a key role as The Netherlands reached their second consecutive World Championship semi-final, after first qualifying for the penultimate stage in 2015. At Germany 2017, The Netherlands took the bronze medal after beating Sweden in the 3/4 match. Groot also won the EHF Champions League and Hungarian championship with Györ, as well as being named EHF Champions League MVP and All-star Team centre back.
Norway’s Nora Mørk has been a key member of the national team for several years, playing an instrumental part in their success and consistently being selected in All-star Teams at major competitions. In 2017, she won the silver medal at the 23rd IHF Women’s World Championship in Germany, where she was the All-star right back and top scorer with a total of 66 goals. She joined Hungarian side Györi Audi ETO KC for the 2016/17 season, winning the EHF Champions League and Hungarian championship in her first year with the team. Mørk was also named as All-star right back for the Champions League 2016/17.
Stine Bredal Oftedal
Alongside Nora Mørk, Norway captain Stine Bredal Oftedal has had many years of international success in the national team. In 2017, she added the World Championship silver medal to her list of achievements, and was named as the Most Valuable Player at Germany 2017 for her 46 assists (top-ranked in this category) and 44 goals, which placed her fifth on the top scorer list. For the 2017/18 season, Oftedal joined Györi Audi ETO KC.
