Today is a Men’s only day. The Women’s side of the Euro Champs had a rest day so all the Men’s teams battled it out.
France notched their first win of the tournament holding onto a thriller against Poland. Gryphon Striker Jean Jean, from Lyon, was the difference with his goal putting France that crucial one goal ahead and getting the win.
England battled hard against Germany in a game which produced eight goals, with a final score of 4 all. James Tindall was again a standout for the England side as well as Moore.
Belgium went in their encounter with Austria knowing they needed a big win for goal difference. Their intensity was high from the first whistle and showed a lot of energy producing a mountain of chances. In the end their goals came towards the latter parts of the game with a 3 to 0 scoreline.
The headliner was the Olympic Silver medalists, Spain, versus the hosts in Holland. The Dutch were in great form from their 9 goal win and were amped up. Obviously not as amped up as the Spanish who took a very early lead from a PS. Tempers flared further in the first when an errant foot (yes they can go their own way) hit Take’ on his head which almost ended in an onfield brawl. In a game that had sun, rain and then a beautiful sunset, the hosts couldn’t get on the board. Spain worked hard and with their third goal coming from an amazing reverse from the edge of the D put themselves at the pointy end of the tables. Spain 3, Holland 0.
