GB 3 NED 1
Ten-man GB picked up their second win of the tournament in controversial style.

Adam Ellis headed them in front early on, though they were down to ten men with 35 minutes on the clock after Zack Rose picked up a second yellow card after punching a cross away, after the referee had blown up.

However, not letting the numerical disadvantage affect them, two goals in five minutes at the start of the second half from Adam Burchell saw them seal another win.

Manager Simon Zanet said: “The boys showed a fantastic attitude, their commitment and desire was brilliant. It was an ugly performance, in what was a controversial game but it’s another win and now we look forward to Germany on Friday.”


ESP 1 GB 6
GB also made two wins from two as two goals from Jordan Green, coupled with strikes from Joe Leslie, Alex Rose, Jayden Huglin and Jake Salem saw them to this emphatic win.

TUR 1 GB 9
The most emphatic of wins saw even goalkeeper Josh Tray get on the scoresheet, scoring an effort from his own area. He was joined on the scoring front by James Gordon and Asher Goldberg who scored two each, with Danny Stapleton, Chaim Korman, Jordan Nathan and Maxim Green also on target.

Manager Adam Lustigman said: “It was a mixture of us being clinical and them playing poorly – they didn’t really trouble us. We next face an Italian side who will probably be the best oppostition we’ll face.

GB 5 DEN 5
GB conceded a heartbreaking-last second penalty meaning they now have to beat South Africa tomorrow – and hope other results go in their favour if they’re to remain in the competition.

Dan Reuben’s hat-trick, along with strikes from Danny Schweiger and Johnny Rainer had put them into a 5-4 lead, but the most dramatic of finishes denied them the win.

Manager Phil Caplin said: “We had a slow start, but then pressed them and we dominated the whole of the second half. We were on top, I had nothing to do in goal until the final second.
