First three points for Portugal, Switzerland and Andorra. Today, the Iberian classic, Spain-Portugal

The first day of the Senior Men WSE European Championships started immediately with several mixed emotions. The 2-2 draw between Spain and France, the last two European finalists, confirms the good physical condition of the French, able to recover the result twice, after the double advantage achieved by Grau and Barroso. Once again the two brothers Bruno and Carlo Di Benedetto put their signature, above all Carlo who had the only direct shot available three minutes from the end. At the head of Group A is instead Portugal, who managed the victory over a good but patchy Italy. The number 77, Gonçalo Alves, is still the protagonist, four goals in the sheet. With a 3-0 lead over the Italians, the Portuguese are almost caught up of 4-3 by Cocco and Gavioli. Pyrotechnic final, but Portugal proved to be still one step ahead. In Group A there are two teams with full points: Switzerland and Andorra are within three points, thanks to 4-0 and 6-2 victories against England and Germany respectively. It was Andorra’s second historic victory against Germany and no doubt Nil Castellvi’s four goals made the difference. The Swiss, on the other hand, got the better of a good England who, however, didn’t find a way to score, which their opponents found several times instead.
Today is the day of Spain-Portugal (18:30 CEST), the Iberian classic, a tug of war that usually offers great high-intensity matches, even if Andorra against Switzerland can already mean something for Group B (13:00). 30 CEST). England-Germany and Italy-France, two clashes that already have the flavor of revenge after the first 50 minutes.
