Korfball European Championships – 1st Group Stage

October 25, 2010

As predicted, the top 8 seeds all won through into the A section for the second group stage, without too many headaches. The key results though were the ones that will carry through into the second group stage. Russia beat England 26-24, and the Czech Republic won 20-17 over Portugal, results that will mean that the English and Portuguese have it all to do in order to reach the semi-finals. The Dutch and Belgian victories over Germany and Catalonia will also carry through, but unless there are some huge shocks, that shouldn’t be the decisive factor in qualification.

In the B Section, Wales, Poland, Hungary and Ireland take victories into the second pools, though Ireland only get 2 points and Slovakia 1 from Ireland’s golden goal victory – the most dramatic game of the tournament so far. These pools look very even though, and all the teams will still feel they have a chance of qualifying from them and keeping World Championship qualification alive.
