Topscorers: Eliza Buceschi (ROU) 11 goals and Camilla Dalby –  Louise Spellerberg(DEN) 4 goals each

Romania had no problems to defeat Denmark, Scandinavians struggeling from the start against an outstanding Romanian team, where Buceschi, Elisei or Ungureanu  showed their class alongside with Neagu. Denmark with a bunch of absences from the squad beacause of injuries of Line Jörgensen, Louise Burgaard or Maria Fisker was clueless and could not stop the strong Romanian team, coached by Tomas Ryde.

Topscorers: Jelena Despotovic (MNE) 8 goals and Forina Chintoan(ROU) 6 goals

Best player of the match: Jelena Despotovic (MNE)

Both Dragan Adzic and Tomas Ryde has decided to give chance for their younger or inexperienced payers in this game, knowing that they ara already qualified to the Olympics. Only Ungureanu started for Romania as an experienced player, and Mehmedovic and Radicevic for Montenegro.

Romania was in lead during the first half, Montenegro having trouble with their defense and goalkeeper performnace, Hasanic could not save many balls. In the second half Barjaktarovic replaced Hasanic and Montenegron set their defense, so they managed to make closer the result and to level the game in the dying minutes.
