Blood in the pool 2?   Featuring one of the original teams. 

One would assume they will get the host quota 

Russia just beat Croatia 

Canada picked up a clutch win against rivals Brazil 11-7. 

 

I guess their famous Italian coach's plans before the tournament (training camp/playing against top club Italian teams), is paying dividends here.

 

With how Greece played against Georgia, maybe there is an outside shot of qualification

Pretty surprise by the greek performance. They might take this game too easily.

 

I am also surprise by the germans, I think they are not as good as the last euro but they seem not good at all for me. I was thinking than the second place of group B will be a battle between Russia, Germany and France but the Netherlands might be a contestant too. The last match of today will tell us a little more on this.

To retain a chance for that, they need to finish no worse than 3rd in the Group A. Then in the QF they face the second of Group B (most probably the Russians), and if they manage to do that, they move to the 3rd place game (after losing to Montenegro in the semifinals). But that game will be exceedingly tough, as one of the 3 big teams (Croatia, Montenegro, Greece) will be there too. Greece might be the most beatable.

PS. this assumes that every match in the group stage ends according to expectations , e.g. Montenegro=1A, Greece=2A, Croatia=1B, Russia=2B

We beat Montenegro 12-7 last month in the World League qualification final...

In that case (i.e. Greece=1A, Montenegro=2B), it will be most probably Croatia v. Montenegro in one of the semifinals, and Greece v. 3A/2B (might be Canada or Russia) in the other. Then either CRO or MNE will be in 3rd place game.
