VIDEO: USA vs. Canada, IHF Challenge Cup

USA’s Orton Fofana about to take a hard foul in the closing minutes. (Check video 8 of 8 at around the 6 minute mark to see how cooler heads prevailed.)

Alberta Team Handball has posted video of the USA – Canada, Men’s Under 20 group play match that was played in Mexico this past November.   Canada won that contest 37-30 and later beat the Americans 40-38 in the Bronze Medal match.

It doesn’t take long to see how pivotal the back court tandem of Fofana, Binderis and Galindo were to the U.S. performance.  These players definitely have a future with the U.S. national team.
