11:10 FINAL PREVIEW

Croatia and Spain are the last teams standing in the way of the EHF EURO 2020 trophy - here's the preview ahead of the final on Sunday afternoon.

10:30 BRONZE MEDAL MATCH PREVIEW

Norway and Slovenia have a hard task ahead of them as they seek to bounce back from last night's disappointments. Here's our preview of both the bronze medal match and the earlier 5/6 placement match between Portugal and Germany.

09:30 FIRST MEDAL TO BE WON TODAY

The bronze medal will be won today, but first up there's the tantalising prospect of a match between Portugal and Germany for fifth place. Portugal have already surpassed expectations for this tournament, while Germany want to end with their heads held high.

Later, Norway will try and win their first ever EHF EURO medal and bounce back from the disappointment of yesterday's marathon semi-final against Croatia. They beat Slovenia 33:30 in the main round, but today will be a very different game.

To start the day, check out this video of the Spanish team celebrating their place in the final by recreating a viral moment from reality TV show 'Isla de la Tentanciones', which has been a hit on social media!
