Spain wins Euro Beach Soccer League event in Marseille
Third and final day of the Euro Beach Soccer League in Marseille and favorites did not miss.
England won Belarus to finish second in Division B and still have a chance to make it to Superfinal. In Division A, Spain killed Poland 7-3 and Portugal gave no chance to France.
Division B: England finishes second. A tight win that the English pulled off in the last minute, with the final score of 1-3. It was a defensive match, with not many goal opportunities, but very physical. Only 1-1 until the last minutes of the game. But England were not going to allow a draw this time. 2 goals in the last 3 minutes of the match made them have some chances to qualify for Superfinal as best second in Division B, while Belarus lost all chances to be in Portugal.
In Division’s A first match, Poland had no chance against Spain. Joaquin Alonso’s pupils ran over the Polish from the fist minute: the scoreboard showed 2-0 after only three minutes of play. Despite Polish attempts of recovery, La Roja always had the game under control and was able to take an easy victory. With this three points, Spain wins the Euro Beach Soccer League stage in Marseille with 8 points and Poland remains with the 5 they got up to yesterday.
Last match of the day and the event featured a very competitive game between Portugal and France. French needed a victory in front of their home crowd…. But it just didn’t happen. France is showing plenty of new faces in this event, and inexperience could be the reason. In any case, French lost today again and qualify last of their event, with zero points in three matches. On the other hand, Portugal played a very serious match and although at the beginning of the third period les bleus played really good, Portugal didn’t allow any surprises and killed the match with a 6-3 victory.
England 3 – 1 Belarus
