All of the teams went on the field with high expectations, and did their best in fierces matches, usually won at the last minute.
The strategies were different from team to team and to game to game: someone preferred focusing on the technical skills of every single player, and someone decided to use more team-based schemes. What did not change, were the amibtions and goal of winning from all the teams.
When asked “What team do you fear the most?” nearly every team answered “We don’t fear anybody, we will be aiming towards victory”.
Despite the great competition between the teams, the matches were overall correct. The game between Serbia and Italy male teams has been very thrillng, ending only with an extraordinary last-minute score for the Italian team.
But also the female matches didn’t lack equality and competitions, like the match between Italy and Bosnia was very balanced and contended, finished with a score of 6 to 4 for the Italy team, who succeded in winning only during extra-time.
