Both Italian Sides Crash Out of Tournament; Israel Stays Perfect

Israel beats Britain, gaining a chance to claim the top spot.


Mundial by Ghetton is entering the crucial stage, with eight teams qualifying for the quarterfinals.

Some surprises transpired last match day, with both Italian teams (seniors and under-21) failing to manage to get a ticket for the playoffs. In the same group, Germany suffered a loss against England by 2-5 and also failed to qualify to quarterfinals.

Israel won again, this time against Great Britain, 9-2. The Israeli team could thus claim the top spot, with 12 points out of 12 available.

The most important game was probably France-Venezuela, where both teams were in need of a victory in order to secure a spot in the final phase. The French team had a great performance, and by winning 6-3 eliminated Venezuela.

The South American team run by Nacho Nuchovits and Roli has been able to confirm expectations and won its fourth game in a row, this time against Italy Under 21.

A very spectacular match between Holland and Bolivia ended with a 4-4 draw.
