29.07.2018

The Netherlands proved to be one of the best teams at the championship by defeating Turkey and winning the fifth place, just behind the big four.

As already mentioned in one of the previous articles, it is a real shame that this team had to play in a group A with the finalists Austria and Czech Republic and be eliminated because they certainly deserved more.

Thus, they will have to be satisfied with the fifth place and look for their chance on the next championship.As for the match, it was open the whole time and could’ve go on both sides until the 55th minute when the Dutchs made a 6:1 run which decided the match.

Florent and Niels have leaded the Dutchs with 9 goals scored each and the best player in the defeated team was Doruk Pehlivan who finished the match with 12 goals scored.
