Yesterday saw the closest and most entertaining game of the tournament so far, when two of the favourites – France’s Spiral and Iceland’s Trapped – went head to head. It was a thrilling affair. Now we go back to Group B to check in with another of the tournament’s favourites – The Bridge – who take on a strong contender: Wales’ Hinterland.
Let’s recap yesterday’s game briefly. It was a tense, close affair – two giants of crime drama going head-to-head. In the end…
So after all that, this is how the Group A table looks:
Spiral (P2 W2 L0 POINTS 6 WM +33%)
Trapped (P2 W1 L2 POINTS 3 WM +98%)
The Fall (P1 W0 L1 POINTS 0)
Mammon (P1 W0 L1 POINTS 0)
Now onto today’s game, which sees a return to action from another tournament favourite: Sweden’s The Bridge.
REPRESENTING SWEDEN: THE BRIDGE
Form guide: One of the favourites, The Bridge caused controversy because of deciding to represnt Sweden, despite its heavy Danish connections. This team features one of Europe’s most dangerous strikers. Saga Norén has an intensity and instinct that makes her hard to stop, and she forms an irresistible partnership with Martin Rohde (who caused yet more controversy when he decided to represent Sweden for this tournament, despite actually being Danish), while out on the wing newcomer Henrik Sabroe provides a fresh take on things. John Lundqvist in the middle of the park is dangerous, too. The big question mark is whether Rohde, who has been out of action for a year, will make the team in time.
REPRESENTING WALES: HINTERLAND
Form guide: Unseeded but a big threat, Hinterland relies on the brooding force that is Tom Mathias. Mathias has high fitness levels thanks to an unforgiving regime that includes running for miles along cliff tops on his own. Currently homeless, Mathias – who’s backed by a strong team – will be playing with a chip on his shoulder. We’re expecting Hinterland to challenge the seeded teams, but reports of unrest inside the camp – especially between Mathias and burly centreback Brian Prosser – may affect its chances.
Another good game on paper. VOTE NOW!
