Reiner Wirsbitzki, a cornerstone of the German success
In an intense and thrilling team encounter, Team Germany defeated Team Belgium in the semi-final with 3:0.
The match came to a final showdown with an advantage for the Germans. Steffen Gross had won the 10-ball over Pascal Budo with 7:4 so team Germany was leading. 1:0. The other tables had both hill-hill situations. Reiner Wirsbitzki and Johny Vanrijkel were on 6:6 in 8-ball while Ralf Wack and Steve Lambrechts were on 8:8 in 9-ball. Everything was possible at that point in time. One could hear a pin drop in the audience when Wirsbitzki lined up the final 8-ball. He pocketed it and the pressure fell off team Germany. They started celebrating and shouted out their happiness while the Belgians had to accept their loss.
The other semi-final match between Portugal and Sweden ended 2:1 in favour of team Portugal. Though the result indicates a close match, the Portuguese always remained at the wheel. Paolo Costa had to give in 3:7, playing 8-ball against Jan Lundell. But his teammates Henrique Correia and Manuel Pereira controlled their respective matches. Correia won the 10-ball with 7:2 and Pereira won the 9-ball 9:3, so it was in the bag for Portugal.
The final match will be played between Germany and Portugal.
