In last round of group stage Russians were ruthless against Netherlands – 6-0.

Russian team was productive from the very start of the game. Using only 6 minutes to get to know other team, Aleksey Borkin (10) was the one to break 0-0 on the scoreboard. Not waiting long, he scored his second of the day on 14th minute. Scoring twice soon became a custom for Russians, with Marat Evloev (9) upsetting Dutch on 17th and 24th.

Netherlands were able to recover in defense for first part of second half, however, not for long. Aleksey Borkin and Sergey Materukhin soon made the final score 6-0.


Avtandil Baramidze, head coach of Russian national team, concluded the game: “Netherlands are a very interesting team. They are improving from year to year and bring some talented players annually. Our team showed some goof effort today. Next game is against Argentina on July 13. Therefore, we are now focused on preparation for the next game.”    

Since an outstanding performance on the group stage, Russian team finished first in Group D. In quarterfinals, Russia will face Argentina, who came second in Group C, where Ukraine finished first.
