The England team have finished fifth at the European Mixed Teams Championship in Lisbon, Portugal. It was an up-down-campaign that kept their supporters guessing until the very end. A great start, a fairly quiet couple of days in the middle that left them in danger of missing out, and a superb finish where they won seven out of the last eight matches. They have now qualified for the World Championships in Wuhan, China, in September. Congratulations to all the team!
