Germany defeated The Netherlands in a 23-goal thriller on day two of the Bandy World Championship in Sweden.
The Pool B goal-fest finished 13-10 and was lauded by organisers the Federation of International Bandy (FIB) who compared the score to a game of handball.
It was 8-2 to Germany at half-time at the Arena Vänersborg and although the Dutch registered eight times after the break it was not enough.
Two players scored four times each, Alexander Kolyagin for the Germans and Alexander Cras for The Netherlands.
"We don't know about something like this in bandy history, at least not in World Championships," the FIB said.
In today's other Pool B match, Norway beat United States 6-3.
