Today’s 1st game between Australia and The Netherlands ended with a clear victory in favour of the Dutch by 10-30.
Belgium and China played the 2nd game, which also finished with a smashing 36-13. The 6-0 in the first 4 minutes clearly showed the path for an easy game for the Belgians.
The game of the day was Great Britain vs. Germany. As expected, another great and exciting korfball match, decided in the last 2 minutes. Intense, vibrating and decisive as usual when these two great squads play one against the other.
The last match of the day was Poland vs. Chinese Taipei. The power of the Asian team was decisive and gave no options to the local team, that improved its scoring during the 2nd half, providing good goals to the big crowd that attented the game.
Monday, July 24th, it’s going to be a great day for korfball, with very interesting semi-finals. Enjoy them all!
