Louise Sand returns for Sweden

Sweden’s left winger Louise Sand has been added as a late registration to coach Henrik Signell’s Sweden squad after the Brest Bretagne player returned from a bruised ankle picked up in training on Wednesday.

Sand’s return means Sweden are now up to the full squad complement of 16, with only Germany and Denmark remaining currently* on 15 players, with one late registration allowed.

However, Germany coach Michael Biegler has already had to make a player replacement after centre back Kim Naidzinavicius tore cruciate ligaments. She was replaced by 21-year-old right back Alicia Stolle who plays her club handball for HSG Blombery-Lippe.

Korea coach Jae Won Kang has also made an injury replacement with 19-year-old right back Ji In Jung coming in for centre back Han Na Gwon. National team newcomer Jung plays her club handball for Baekyang H.S.

Teams are allowed three player replacements in total over the course of Germany 2017.
