Article written by: CcBraga


Host: Lithuania
Lithuania is the host of the U18 tournament and will fight against China for the title.

1st Round
Argentina, United States, Lithuania and China won their groups.
A good performance of the U18 Germany (managed by RaZeev) In group A that almost finished 2nd in the group and by Serbia and his platinum ranked manager xeedas1 in group D that almost qualified to the next phase.
After the fantastic performance with Jamaica U16 last season, this time the Spanish U18 manager BF_Barsello could not win against Russia and Australia and did not make to pass to the 2nd round in group B, this was a huge disappointment because they where one of the favorites to advance to the playoffs.

2nd Round
United States did not make to advance to the next phase, Philippines and Latvia did advance to the playoff with Lithuania and Italy.
RaZeev one more time did good job and put Germany in the playoffs and left Russia and Australia outside and they followed Argentina, China and France to the playoffs.

Lithuania, China and France didn’t have difficulties in reaching the semifinal, and in the other game Italy beat Argentina by 4 points

Lithuania and China reached the final with no problems beating France and Italy.

Lithuania started very well but then China turn the game to their side in the intermediated quarters, teams entered tied to the last quarter but China won making 8-2 in the last 2 minutes of the game
