These nations have met two times in World Team Championships. One victory for each nation.
#2 : Mathieu Castagnet VS Peter Creed (11-6, 11-4, 11-9) - 36min
In the first match Mathieu Castagnet was facing the Welshmen Peter Creed, World n°63, whom he won against two years ago in the 1st round of the World Open. Creed is the same type of player than Castagnet. Verey combative and with a really defensive style. In thos circumstances, the french had to be quicker. He was in the two first matches but less in the third. The Frenchman managed to win this last game 11-9 and delivers the first point for France !
