Several meetings were tight but the final result proved to be final. Winners 5-0 this Thursday in Aire-sur-la-Lys of a German team which had lined up several substitutes, the French won in their last group meeting of the European Badminton Championships. A victory that is added to those obtained against the Netherlands And Bulgaria and which allows the Blues to finish leaders of group B.
The classification was important because the first place allowed to avoid the winner of pool A, in this case Denmark. The settlement of the draw for this Euro is thus made that it proposed a new opposition between France and Germany in the semi-final on Friday. The meeting will begin at 4 p.m. The first semi-final will oppose Denmark and England from 1 p.m., who were also in the same group.
The Xuefei Qi Marathon
It was Christo Popov who gave the first point to the Blues by outclassing Kai Schaefer (21-12, 21-9). Then Xuefei Qi delivered a titanic fight of 1h18 to Yvonne Li to give France a lead (20-22, 21-14, 21-15), before the decisive point brought in men’s doubles by Ronan Labar and Lucas Corvée (18-21, 21-16, 24-22). Then Margot Lambert and Anne Tran took part in the celebration in women’s doubles (21-13, 19-21, 21-14), prelude to a quiet match for Delphine Delrue and Thom Gicquel in mixed doubles (21-15, 21- 14).
