Portugal, Hungary taste Siofok success

Portugal lifted their second stage title of the year while hosts Hungary are Promotion Final-bound


Portugal claimed their second Euro Beach Soccer League stage in Siofok on Sunday with a 3-1 win against Belarus.

With both sides going for the title on the final day, it proved a captivating contest but it was ultimately settled with a brace from Leo Martins and a wonderful individual goal from Jordan Santos.

The Siofok success follows Portugal's trophy lift in Nazare earlier this year.

Hungary were then crowned champions of Division B courtesy of a 7-3 win against Bulgaria.

Both sides were in with a chance of lifting the trophy going into the weekend’s final match but it was the hosts who were on top for large spells as the likes of Ferenc Besenyei ensured a spot at the Promotion Final next month.

A virtuoso display from Pawel Friszkemut helped Poland pick up their first points of the stage at the final attempt as the European champions claimed a 5-4 win against Azerbaijan.

The forward scored four goals as Poland bolstered their hopes of reaching the Superfinal while Azerbaijan - promoted last term - have work to do to avoid a swift return to the second tier despite pulling late goals back.

Denmark avoided bottom spot in Division B with a 13-3 win against Andorra.

Both sides endured difficult outings on Friday and Saturday but it was Denmark who went out on a high as Casper Dorph Jorgensen and Henrik Raedkjaer helped inspire a dominant win.
