Hockey: Portugal in the Montreux Tournament final after beating Italy


The Portuguese national team of roller hockey qualified for the final of the 68th edition of the Montreux Tournament in Switzerland, beating Italy 3-2, marking an encounter with Argentina.

Gonçalo Alves, Rafa and Jorge Silva scored the goals of the 'quinas', who were never at a disadvantage but also failed to lead by more than one goal.

For the transalpine, who committed 11 absences, against five of Portugal, they invoiced Francesco Compagno and Davide Banini.

In the final, scheduled for Sunday, the Portuguese team will face Argentina, who beat Angola 4-3 in a match in which the great 'star' was Benfica boss Lucas Ordoñez, who scored a hat-trick.

Spain, who beat Montreux 10-1 and France 9-2 against Switzerland, will play in fifth place, while Angola will fight for the bronze with the Spaniards.
