Norway’s men are ready for the European Handball Championships 2010 after beating Estonia 31-23 in Wednesday’s Euro qualifier in Trondheim. Kenneth Klev scored eight goals for Norway.

Norway seemed to have problems with Estonia who kept up with the home team in the first 30 minutes. However, Norway managed to get up to a 15-30 lead before the break.

In the second half Norway opened with a goals scored by Håvard Tvedten on a penalty, and in another four minutes Norway led with six goals, and halfway through the period the lead increased to 26-15.

This was the sixth time in a row that Norway qualified for a European or World Championship.
