Tomorrow, Israel will complete the group stage with a meeting against the host Portugal, where another victory will keep them at the top of the house and allow for a more favorable opponent in the next stage.

Goalball is for the blind and visually impaired.

During the competition, the athletes play blindfolded in order to compare their level of blindness, when they identify the location of the goal by markings on the field, and the location of the ball by the bells inside.
