FRANCE 2017: Here are the quarter finals

On Tuesday we will have the quarter finals, and on Sunday the last four finalists got ready. 16 has become 8 and we’re in the last week of the World Championship France 2017.

Sunday’s matches brought some surprises when both the Olympic Champions and the European Champions have to go home after been beaten.

Denmark had big problems with Hungary from the start to the end, and never managed to catch up and get the lead.

Germany were in big trouble against Qatar, and had the opportunity in the last minutes, but didn’t manage to get the ball into the net, and Qatar could control the ball the last seconds of the match and secure their one goal victory.

Sweden had no problem with Belarus, and delivered the biggest win Sunday evening.

Croatia managed to send Egypt home and made Qatar the only non-European team among the top 8 teams.
