Italy qualifies to the semifinals. Today Spain, Portugal and France can do the same, but surprises are right around the corner.

The 36th U17 European Championship of Rink Hockey in Fanano has its first semi finalist. Defeating England 5-1, Italy got the pass for the 2nd phase in group A and will play for medals starting from Friday.
Tonight, Spain, France and Portugal have the opportunity to reach the semi finals too, but this will happen only if they all win.

In group A, Spain didn’t play yesterday while Germany won 6-3 agains Israel, staying in the race for the 2nd place. Today, in the 4th round of the group stage, Germany will play against England (who lost both game against Spain and Italy, but seems improoving day by day), while Spain will face up Italy in a decisive game for the final standing of the group.

In group B, France and Portugal lead with two wins in two games. Yesterday, France won easily against Austria (10-1), while Portugal rested. In the other game of the group, Andoraa and Switzerland tied after an amazing game, decided in the last minute. France and Portugal will pass for sure to the semi finals only if they both win today: France will play against Switzerland and Portugal will play against Andorra.
