France - Faroe Islands: 5-0

Nearly one thousand kids were gathered in Aire sur la Lys to see France win their opening tie 5-0 against the Faroe Islands. The great atmosphere surely helped the French team and Thomas Rouxel was really happy about the crowd.

- It is quite nice to play in France with this kind of support behind me, it’s fantastic.

Slovakia - Estonia: 1-4

In the second tie of the day, Estonia secured an important 4-1 win over Slovakia and Kristin Kuuba seemed quite relieved after beating Martina Repiska.

- I was a bit slow, in the 2nd set especially, last time we played each other it was also a hard fight, so I am just happy that I won.
