Latest from the Women’s World Championship

With apologies for life getting in the way of updating this blog for the past few days of the tournament …

Wednesday’s action at the Women’s World Championship was centred on Groups A and B who, at the end of the day, had completed four of their five matches.

And in Group A, that’s all that is needed to confirm who the four qualifiers for the Round of 16 are.   South Korea booked their passage with a brutal 51:20 win over Paraguay and the Netherlands then did the same by recording their second tournament, this time over DR Congo.  The day’s final game saw two already qualified teams face off.  France and Montengro played a bizarrely low-scoring match that ended 17:16.

In Group B, Brazil made it four wins from four with a 24:20 victory over Japan.  This followed their resolute victory over Serbia which marked them out as dark horses.  China beat Algeria 27:25 but will need an unlikely victory over Serbia to have any chance of progressing.  In the last match, Denmark and Serbia had a bit of an arm wrestle but Serbia, riding their loud support once more, eventually ran out winners by 23:22.

The matches for the 12th December are (predicted winners in bold) below.  All matches are live over on Bet365 live streaming with the first game throwing off at 1.45pm (UK).
