|18||5-8 Place||12:30pm||BEL - WAL||8 - 0 (3 - 0)||Final|
Belgium comprehensively saw off Wales to take up their place in the fifth position playoff against South Africa. They were well clear at half-time, Emilie Sinia giving them an early advantage from Jill Boon’s assist. Two corner goals, the first from Stefanie de Groof’s second phase sweep and the other via Pauline Leclef’s sharp rebound, saw the world number 14 side three to the good at the break.
And the Belgians piled on the misery in the second half as Louise Versavel’s cross was turned in by a Welsh defender for an own goal soon after the interval. De Groof added her second from a corner, taking the direct route to goal, before Sinia also scored her second for three goals in seven minutes. Alix Gerniers bullied one over the line for numbers seven and eight.
