A coincidentally perfect hashtag

Every match at the EHF EURO 2016 has its own dedicated hashtag, which features the participating countries' three-letter NOC codes put together to create one easy, six-letter tag for social media users to share their thoughts on each game. For example, the hashtags for Monday's Group 1 matches in Wroclaw were #MKDNOR and #POLBLR.

Tuesday's Scandinavian duel, Sweden vs Denmark worked out in favour of the Swedes. As they are the designated 'home side', their NOC code is first and Denmark's is second. The result? #SWEDEN.
