The second part of the match was also controlled by the Polish side, even France managed to come back to one goal defference (16-15), they never manged to get the draw or the lead. Poland has participated at WCh last time in 2007, and now they are qualified in the semifinals.

It is quiet unbielivable to defeat a team like France, which is one the best teams in the world. I think that we deserved to be in the semifinals.”
