August 13, 2021 - The Croatia women's handball team draws Group G at the World Championships to be held this December in Spain. 

The Croatia women's handball team will play in Group G at the World Championships to be held in Spain from December 2 to 19 this year, and its rivals will be the second representative of Asia and the first and third representatives of South and Central America, the draw in Castellon decided on Friday.
