Italy vs. Czech R. (27:17)

The Czech Republic beat Italy 27:17 in the game for the third place. The Czechs won the Bronze medal of the European Championship. The Italians finish fourth.
After losing to the Danes in the preliminary round the Czech national team showed a different face on Saturday surprising a frustrated Italian team. A powerful offense lead by quarterback Libor Navratil and running back Ondrej Visek pounded its way through Italy’s defense, another running back, Martin Dlouhy, scored two spectacular touchdowns. The Italian team scored twice within the last quarter, but Czech’s defense stopped the last play of the game with a sack on backup quarterback Tommaso Monardi.
