1st Pandanet European Championship: results of the 4th round

Unfortunately, once again, the strengh difference proved to be too great: Belgium lost 0-4 to Danemark in the 4th round (played 25/01/11)...

Despite the fact that no Belgian player has lost against a (on paper) weaker opponent up till now, Belgium has only 2 points after the 4 first rounds...(looks like typical Belgian Eurovision score, isn'it ?! :-)
