Quarterfinal time at Men’s 2011 Beach Handball EURO

Big games on all four courts at the lagoon of Stella Maris in Umag (CRO) decided the Main Round in the men’s tournament today.

Main Round

Group 1

Croatia have grown to become local heroes at the tournament in their home country. After today’s three victories, they remain the only unbeaten team of all participating nations, having won every single set. They clearly won the group and are now one of the top-favourites for gold. The winners of Preliminary Round Group A – Russia – finished on the runners-up spot. The last two teams snatching a ticket to the quarterfinal are Ukraine and Denmark. For the eastern Europeans the two victories over Turkey and Cyprus were enough, while Denmark’s victories over the same two teams only secured fourth place. Turkey and Cyprus continue tomorrow in Placement Round, where they play for places 9-12
