#EuroHockey5s – Italy win EuroHockey5s Future Heroes Cup, Prague

Posted On 9th July 2016

9th July 2016: Today the one pool event finished with a fantastic battle between the 2 top teams and Italy are crowned Champions of #EuroHockey Future Heroes Cup 2016. 

Pool C: 

CRO v BUL 1-2

Both teams had a lot of chances in the first period. The Croatian goalkeeper played really well earlier on in the game padding away any chances coming her way. In the opening minute of the second period Bulgaria scored with a nice run and finish from Getova. Terrific saves from Petkova lead to a break away and a second Bulgarian goal. Croatia pulled one back thanks to Hrupec, and that’s how the game ended.

Croatia 23 10 HRUPEC Petra Challenge Goal 1 – 2


Pool A:

TUR v CZE 4-5

Brilliant start to this match with chances at both ends. Turkey went ahead in the 4th minute and it took Czech 7 minutes to equalise. Turkey went back in front with a nice finish from Yeter Holubcova and a minute later a long range strike from Navakova put the teams level again. In the 15th and 16th minutes they exchanged goals again. In the last 2 minutes Czech went ahead again and with the score 5-3 a tense couple of minutes and pressure from Turkey produced another goal but it wasn’t enough for Turkey to win. Czech and Italy will now play for the gold medal later today.
