Portugal qualified to the final after the victory against Italy (3-2)


On the third matchday of European Championship, Spain settled England 13-0 with the young Roces’ poker and hat-tricks for Florenza and Castellvi. A victory that allows the spanish team to get one step away from the final but will still have two games to get there, the first tomorrow in the highly interesting Iberian derby against Portugal (beginning at 20:00 local, 21:00 CET), the second Friday against France. In the other challenge, Portugal secured the final by beating Italy 3-2 in a match really full of emotions, where Italy tried to stem the fast manoeuvre of the opponents succeeding in part. After Ghirardello’s 0-1 draw in the first half, the portugueses managed to overtake Italy with Ferreira and the young Santos. Italy equalized again on Lapolla’s shot but the decisive goal was by Moncovio who did not fail to make it 3-2. In the last final seconds, Italy failed to draw by slamming a penalty shot by Lapolla on the post.

Tomorrow two matches with the intense fight between Portugal and Spain at 20:00 GMT, 21:00 CET. Decisive to reach the bronze medal match France-England. All the matches will be broadcasted live through europe.worldskate.tv and for Portugal tv.fpp.pt, for Spain feptv.es and for Italy hockeypista.fisrtv.it
