Uruguay shows great strength

Uruguay shows great strength

Italy that arrived to Oman without any real preparation is hoping to collect form in the test matches before the main event starts and a game against Uruguay was a great challenge for this goal.

Preparing together with Brazil gave the South Americans a great boost, so their performance level rose a lot and the Uruguay players showed this in the match against Italy.

The South Americans set a storming start and marched on with 4:0, but the Italians replied with a 7:0 run turning the result within minutes.

A time out call on the Uruguay side quickly brought results and so with an enthusiastic performance the South Americans brought home the first period.

Last year´s European bronze medallist got its act together for the second period and replied with an improved performance for the first minutes onwards and gave no chance to the South Americans.

A shoot-out had to decide between the two equal teams and there Uruguay were the luckier team and celebrated great success in this top notch duel.

Women´s game:

Italy – Uruguay 1:2 (9:11) (12:6) (4:6)
