Both teams were supported loudly by their female teams, relatives – it was an excellent mood on Court 3 in this exciting thriller.
Denmark were highly motivated after their afternoon victory over Cyprus, they only needed one more victory to make it to the Top8.
Turkey a little bit disappointing after their last year´s performance in the World Championship caught a slow start, as the Danes punished every mistake on the Turkish side. Several errors occured in their game and the Scandinavians easily brought home the first set.
The second period became a nail biting thriller for both teams and the spectators in the stands. Turkey went all-out and with nice combinations and a reinforced attacking plan the game remained open till the dying seconds.
Here the Danes remained more calm and focused, they won the game and advanced to the Quarterfinals, where they´ll either meet Russia or Croatia tomorrow.
Kasper Kvist, player of Denmark: “It´s a big relief now that we defeated Turkey, we´ve advanced to the next stage. It doesn´t matter whether we´ll face Russia or Croatia there, I think, we´ve chances against both teams.”
