An afternoon with the sunshine in Cambrai Hockey Club. It was a beautiful day to spend time on the EuroHockey Championship II in Cambrai. The public and especially residents of Cambrai and regulars of the region Hauts-de-France were there to support the teams.

Pool B was in action today, with Ukraine and Italy looking to get their first points and Russia and Austria battling to be top-ranked in the pool going into the final pool games.

About the first game, Italy had the advantage of the match since the beginning and finish with the victory 5 goals against 3 for Ukraine.
