Gerwyn Price ‘bottles’ 7-0 lead as Danny Noppert launches amazing comeback win

Darts fans have been left shocked as Danny Noppert launched an incredible comeback win against Gerwyn Price.

Noppert had found himself 7-0 down in a race to ten at the European Championships, and seemingly crashing out to the Welsh superstar. However, Price would only go onto claim one more leg as Noppert landed seven 180s on his way to winning 10-8.

The Dutchman has won legions of fans in Dortmund, and he joked earlier in the week: "I'm not the really boring player that everyone thinks. But sometimes I just need to keep calm. If I'm celebrating too hard, adrenaline goes too high and then sometimes I can struggle."

Price was caught in two minds about travelling to Germany for the tournament, with the finals clashing with his daughters birthday. He explained: "I want to be here, then I don't want to be here. There's things going on at home.

"It's my daughter's birthday this weekend so I'd rather be home than be here. I was caught in two minds so it's one of those things."
