Background: The world's four best handball teams - those of Sweden, Czechoslovakia, East Germany and Denmark - met in a tournament at Copenhagen, Jan. 1.
Sweden - the champion last year but missing one of their best players - scored three goals at the start of their match with Czechoslovakia, last year's runner-up. Then a Swedish player was sent off the field for rough play. Czechoslovakia attacked hard, and the match ended with the surprise result of 21 goals to 13 in Czechoslovakia's favour.
It was a popular win with the crowd of 6,000 Danes, whose national team have not succeeded in beating Sweden for several years. In the match between Denmark and East Germany, Denmark won, 18-13.
