This match has been intense, with beautiful actions and where Wales was in advance on two occasions but Irland got the final draw at the end of the game.

The second match was totally different and Spain beat Slovenia by 0-9. A match where Spain was clearly superior and they could get more goals but the good actions of the Slovenian goalkeeper didn’t allow it.

In the afternoon session, a hurricane called Scotland has passed through Santander and has defeated Irland by a clear 11-3. The Scottish team has developed a brilliant, fast and really effective game. In front of them, the Irish team hasn’t been able to defend his goal and they have been able to do little in attack.
