It’s the last round of the qualification. Only Italy, Switzerland and Germany won yesterday.

The second matchday changes the two rankings of the two groups of Senior Men WSE Euro 2023. Because in Group B, ongoing at Sant Sadurni’ d’Anoia (Spain). Switzerland puts a serious mortgage on first place, winning with a clear 5-2 against Andorra who Monday had started their adventure very well. Gottwald and Rettenmund scored the winning goals. Germany raises its head after the debut defeat: England is beaten 8-2, under the blows of the most prolific striker in recent German history, Lucas Karschau (5 goals). Pretty strong emotions in Group A: also in this case the classification, that seemed to reward Spain up to a few seconds of the “Iberian classic”, is redesigned. The ubiquitous Gonçalo Alves took care of it (5 total goals like Castellvi and Karschau) to tie a complicated game, despite being well conducted in the second half by the Cabestany players. Portugal remains in the lead with 4 points, but Italy is now in second place. Canceled the defeat against the Lusitanians on Monday, the “azzurri” led to victory in a team that has appeared more times in the area than the opponent. Two goals for Cocco and Malagoli and the first three points in the standing.
This afternoon it’s time to draw up the definitive standings for qualification, in view of tomorrow’s quarter-finals with the awaited match between the two groups. Switzerland-Germany (13:30 CEST= is a classic of central-northern Europe while for England versus Andorra it’s time to get in touch with the victory (16:00 CEST 15:00 GMT+1)  The two matches in Group A could redesign the standings again because all the teams are just a few points away from each other. Portugal-France (18:30 CEST 17.30 GMT+1)
