Greece 28-1 Thailand (7-0, 9-0, 5-0, 7-1)
The game between Greece and Thailand was not an interesting one, unless one-sided routs are your thing. Two young players from Olympiacos, Maria Myriokefalitaki and Vasiliki Plevritou both netted four times.
At one point in the game, the score was 18-0 to the Greeks, highlighting the sheer gulf in class between the two nations. Thailand will want to forget their first World Championship game, but face potentially more woe on Wednesday in their next game.
