- Story Text: Germany trained for the final time on Saturday (January 14) ahead of the Euro 2012 handball championships in Serbia and their opening fixture against the Czech Republic.
The tournament represents the last chance for Germany to make the London Olympics, and they will be relying on star players Pascal Hens - from HSV Hamburg and the owner of 91 International caps with 554 goals to his name - and goalkeeper Silvio Heinevetter.
Coach Martin Heuberger, who oversaw the training session in Nis, takes charge in a major tournament for the first time, and will be hoping to improve on Germany's 10th place in the European Championships two years ago.
Germany face Sweden and Macedonia, as well as the Czech Republic, in Group B.
