The second match of the group B in Kristianstad had a clear favourite from the start, the Olympic silver medalist France is one of the medal candidates here in Sweden too, meanwhile Poland arrived with a new head coach and without Karolina Kudlacz-Gloc.

In the first quarter after the start Poland managed to stress the French team, leading 4-5, making a surprisingly good game, but France improved the defence and goalkeeper play, taking the lead 8-5. Poland had no good answer to the French assault, so Pineau and company finished the first half with 15-9 lead.

In the second half France continued to run, Poland did not manage to keep up the tempo which resulted in a big French victory, with many fastcounters scorings.  Final result:

France – Poland 31 – 22 (15 – 9)

Goals:

France: Leynaud 1, Glauser – Pineau 2, Nze Minko 5, Flippes 1, Kolczinsky  5, Dembele 5, Houette 1, Edwige, Landre, Lacrabere 3, Saurina 1, Gnabouyou 2, Niombla 2, Zaadi 2, Horacek 1
