Added 08-08-2014

Today marks the end of the round robin matches of the 2014 IWRF World Championship at the Arena Fyn in Odense, Denmark.


Australia and Canada will fight for the top seeding from Pool A in a very important match up for the two teams.


Meanwhile in Pool B, Japan and the USA will fight for the right to play the second ranked team from Pool A.


The first of the final seven group matches includes Sweden and Germany. The German side is yet to put a win on the board and will be looking to do so against the current European champions.


Following that matchup we have Japan and the USA looking to cement their spot and set up their weekend with a win.


Immediately following that game over court one, the Australian Steelers will be chasing another win over Paralympic silver medalists Canada with the winner having the privilege of topping Pool A.


The host nation will be looking for their first win since the opening day of the event when they take on Finland. Another strong home crowd is likely to make its way to the arena to show their support and help get the Danish team over the line.


Great Britain will have to settle for third place in Pool A and will play their final match against Belgium who are yet to be victorious this week.


Germany will have a good opportunity to get their first win on the board today when they face New Zealand. The two nations are very evenly matched and will provide the fans with a very entertaining encounter.


Sweden will also be involved in the final match of the day against France which is important because they will be aiming to finish third in Pool B.


Please tune into the live stream for all seven matches on the World Championship website or follow live commentary on Facebook and Twitter.
