The Swedish men’s Under-21 won against hosts Greece in the first ladder match after the main round. Kasper Palmar was the top scorer in a match Sweden won by ten balls.

After a full pot in the group stage, it ended in the main round for the Swedish U21 men. Denmark and Hungary were a tough draw before and Sweden lost both matches after some blurring in the final.

Sweden must instead focus on the classification matches (places 9 to 16) and the expected first Greece. Kasper Palmar was Sweden’s top scorer again with eight goals and is second in the shooting championship after 42 goals in six games. Sweden were five goals better than Greece in each half and overall it was a 39-29 win in Athens.

At 8:00 p.m. tonight, Sweden play their last game of the tournament and it is Egypt who represent the opposition in the fight for the 9-12 positions. The game is broadcast on Viaplay.
