The powerful Dutch team wins the IKF U19 World Korfball Championship 2023
Twelve teams have been competing in the Belgian city of Ghent from 7 to 9 April for the IKF U19 World Korfball Championship 2023 trophy. Portugal, Morocco, Netherlands, England, France, Chinese Taipei, Czech Republic, Hong Kong China, Germany, Catalonia, Slovakia and Belgium were the participants, and one team has been playing at another level during all its matches: the Netherlands.
In today’s final against the unbeaten Belgium, the Dutch players were able to perform a very good game again, and the few goals scored by the opponent facilitated an easy win (5-21) for the Netherlands in this final match.
England and Chinese Taipei played for Bronze in the previous game, and the Asian team leaded the match from the very begining with a spectacular and dynamic korfbal, that allowed them to win by 13-26.
In the game for 5th place, Czech Republic beated Catalonia 19-12 and Germany won an exciting match versus Portugal by one single goal (14-13).
