The European representation at the World Beach Games has been decided as Switzerland, Italy, Russia and Spain make the cut!

In a day of shocks, last minute winners and heartbreak, the four men’s teams gaining automatic qualification to the 2019 World Beach Games San Diego were chosen.

Portugal were knocked out by Switzerland thanks to a late Glen Hodel goal, while Spain swept aside Belarus in front of a home crowd in Salou.

The hosts sit bottom of the women’s group, and a second win for Russia sees them close the gap on the ladies of Switzerland at the top of the table.
