An average of 115.62 by Ronnie Huybrechts, the highest ever average by a Belgium on television, was one of the stand out performances of the day.

His 4-0 win over John Michael and Kim’s 4-2 victory over Ioannis Selachoglou gave Belgium a convincing victory over Spain to give the Unicorn brothers a quarter-final match against Singapore.

“He was brilliant,” said Kim.” it’s a different setup today and the singles worked for us. He had a 115 average, so if he can do that for the whole tournament I can put my feet up.” said younger brother Kim.

Ronny, who has made two Pro Tour finals in the last eight months, spoke of needing to be more consistent.

“I can play matches like that but then average 80 in the next game. It’s all in my head and I know when I’m playing well and finding the treble with the first dart, I can be dangerous.”

Meanwhile Unicorn’s Raymond van Barneveld, despite losing his singles match helped tournament favourites The Netherlands to victory over the USA and a place in the quarter-finals.

Unicorn’s John Part, Kyle Anderson and Devon Petersen all bow out of the World Cup as Canada, Australia and South Africa both lost in their second round matches.
