Great Britain edge past Belgium in handball thriller


Great Britain's men's handball team sealed their first win against European opposition in four years with a 26-24 win over Belgium in Brussels.

The visitors were 14-10 down at half-time but were level at 14-14 three minutes after the restart before holding on for a tense victory.

The win provides a huge boost ahead of Britain's 2012 European Championship campaign, which begins in two weeks.

"There were a few wet eyes after the game," said captain Ciaran Williams.

"I can't tell you how amazing it feels. Our time is coming, and soon everyone will see it."
