"Alitalia" flies on to it's next destination, the quarter final against Greece in Stockholm. For "Lufthansa" it is only a matter of flying home to Germany. With a good team moral, fighting spirit and some hot shots, Italy turned things around after having been left behind at halftime. During the last two quarters Italy ruled the floor, while the Germans stood by and watched.
Big time favourites Germany were on top of the game troughout the 40 minutes. In between Latvia proved some good strength, but overall it was Germany who was the strongest team.
At crucial moments, Latvia made a lot of mistakes and won the not so pleasant statistics for turnovers 18-8. With two triumphs the Germans are qualified for the next round. The situation for Latvia is more difficult.
