Day 3 - 28th July 2013

Football and tennis action from Sofia

Welcome to the highlights of Day 3!

Women's Football

Not all the events are taking place in Sofia. The football is being held at Pravets, in a beautiful valley some sixty miles away. There, the GB Women’s football team played against Russia.

Despite the fierce heat, GB Women started well and were just a goal down at half time. Unfortunately, the final score was 2-0 to Russia.

Germany also lost to Russia 2-0, so GB must now beat Germany on Tuesday if they’re to stand a chance of making the semi-final on Thursday.


The GB tennis team continues to make great progress with Peter Wilcox, Lewis Fletcher and Bethany Brookes all winning their singles matches. It's looking good for GB Tennis!
