The Netherlands - Poland, 20:00 PM, Rotterdam


The Netherlands and Poland already met before during this tournament. In the group phase in Apeldoorn the Dutch won by 3-1 from the Polish team. By winning all three group matches, the Dutch qualified themselves for the quarterfinals directly. Poland ended third in their group and needed play offs for the quarterfinals. They won this game with 2-3 from Belarus. Exciting!

Tonight the Dutch women will play Poland for the second this tournament. The Polish ladies had a rough match yesterday against Belarus. They struggled, used all of their players and fought to win 3-2, after being 2-0 up. The best scorer, Katarzyna Skowronska-Dolata, scored 31 points. Holland had the day off having ended first in their group. Both teams serve very well. If the Dutch ladies can repeat their great team effort, the Polish team will have a hard time defeating the Dutch.
