Sweden and Norway to the Main Round

WCH 2021, Spain, Catsello

Main Round, group II

Interesting matches in this Main Round grpup where three teams had the chance before the last round to go to the quarter finals: Sweden, Netherlands and Norway. Sweden managed to win against Romania in a tough game, meanwhile Norway and Netherlands played maybe the most beautiful match until now in the tournament with lots of goals and excitement. Norway got the victory but it is a shame that the Dutch team has to be eliminated.
