Title holder Denmark topped the group 1 with straight victories over Austria and Lithuania (5-0), but struggled against Estonia. The East-Europeans pushed the top seeded team from Scandinavia to the absolute limit only losing out 2-3 in what was a real battle. The tie was decided in the very last match.

England had a tough opener against Sweden (3-2) but then cruised through to the group stages with two easy 5-0 victories over Ukraine and Norway. The Brits, who are the second seeds in Ankara, are now facing Team Germany in tomorrow's quarter-finals.
