WRG2019 - Rink Hockey: Doubles for Spain and Italy at the beginning of the senior championships

While summer spread out in Vilanova i la Geltru, the main stars of rink hockey begin to shine. The senior World Championship started tonight with the first games of the qualifiers and with the first surprises.
Women first. The suffocating atmosphere of the Isaac Galvez sport hall during the afternoon was reserved to the ladies. The eight teams competing in the World Championship played today the first round of both groups. In group A only Spain won easily against Switzerland while the other game, between France and Chile (both former world champion) was more balanced, even if the Marcianitas have always been ahead. In group B there was a surprising result between Portugal and Italy; the European vice-champion lost 3-2 the game against the Azzurre, suffering a come back from 1-0 to 1-3 and being unable to recover this unexpected result. In the other game, Argentina won 5-2 against Germany and now lead the group.
Half Men. Only the teams of Group A played today and wille rest tomorrow, leaving the stage to the four teams of the group B. Angola-Italy and Spain-France were amazing games, even if so different one from each other. In the first game of the World Championship, Angola and Italy come back many times: first Italy from 0-1 to 2-1, then Angola from 2-1 to 2-3, then again Italy from 2-3 to 5-3. Angola failed the last come back, ending with 4 goals and leaving all the point to Italy which first got a double winning both with male and female team. A couple of hour later, Spain did the same and, after the female team, also the male one won its first game. Winning France was quit uneasy because the Di Benedettos and friend played very well, keeping the result balanced until the last minutes, when Spain found the decisive goals.
On Sunday, July 7th, in the second day of the Senior WRG of Rink Hockey, Vilanova will host the 2nd day of the World Championship, but interesting rink hockey games will be played in Terrassa and, most of all, in Sant Cugat where the Intercontinental Cup is ready to start the group stage that will determine the two teams qualified for the play off round on Wednesday.
