Unfortunately, women's national team of Ukraine failed to pass in the main playoff European Team Championship. The defeat of Italy put an end to the hopes of our girls continue to fight for 1-4 and space, in perspective, compete for access to the second division. However, it is worth noting, Italians that this victory was extremely difficult, as confirmed by the participants of the meeting.
«Anastasiya Fesenko and Liana Sardak They showed real fight, We played a very worthy and "otpahal" in each drawing, – I commented on the game captain Yulia owl. – About his game will not say, but the team said I done (smiling). Despite the defeat, one thing we are sure now exactly – Italy will know, that Ukraine is able to run and play well. And we saw, to understand that we can play, can and, the main thing, we want. It affects lack of experience, but, properly, for that we came here and. And in the last game of the group stage against Israel are not going to give the opponent».
Julia's words confirmed by the results of the meetings. Suffice it to note, that Pugach and Sardak stood on the court for five games in the past we have had a real chance of winning. All jokes decided last ball. Yes and Monica Menegotsii proved to Fesenko, is not so terrible rival, even today the level of her game and will be a little higher class, but then, as discussed above, It affects only a lack of experience.
Anyway, now we have to struggle in the playoffs for 5-8 seats. There we will be waiting for the representatives of the group A - the hostess of the tournament and Romanians, with a high probability, Luxembourg team. But who exactly will be the first opponent in the games for the space, It will be decided only tomorrow, after the final game of the group stage. One has only to note, that morning rival team of Israel today with great difficulty overcame outsider our quintet of Belarus with the score 2:1.
