Surprising Angola beats Qatar, Macedonia defeats Japan easily

Group A

Macedonia seemed to not have problems against Japan, which plays with enormous speed in attack, but they had problems with the big Macedonian line-players in their defense. Head coach  Gonzalez made his Macedonian team play almost the entire match with two line-players and seven field-players, without a goalkeeper. Japan operated with fast breaks, but this was not enough against a better opponent.

Angola made trouble for Qatar, with a compact and strong defense and a good goalkeeper performance, Qatar had no chance in the first half. In the dying minutes Qatar managed to fight back, took the lead 23-22, but Angola equalized and after a save from their goalkeeper they scored the winning goal on a fastbreak just seconds before the final whistle.
