We have something to work with, but there is a positive side in our game. "

From this page it was a good match and I liked it. The first two thirds were very difficult I got a little diny. In the third I did not have so many robots because the boys started and felt it. They played well. Unlike our league it was faster, I had to move more. From our side it was pretty unchanged today , we have been a little tired during the tournament. "

The Germans played well, did not throw the puckers, but we did it and reached the winning end.

But with each match we get better and when everyone gets used to it, we can meet regularly as today. "
