QUARTERFINALS

France was the first team to qualify for the semifinal, winning in the morning against Germany in a quite balanced game where the French team tried to save as many energies as possible.
Andorra made id difficult to Italy during the first half. Italy went ahead 2-0 in less than a minute but didn’t succeed to close the game until the middle part of the 2nd half.
Spain and Portugal, on the contrary, obtained large victories against Switzerland and England and went easily into the semifinals.
In the first game of the group for the 9th/11th places, Austria and Belgium draw 4-4.
