WDF Europe Cup Men Singles 1992

The eighth edition of the WDF Europe Cup was held in Kerava, Finland, from 22 to 25 October. After Turku in 1986, this is the second time that Finland has hosted a WDF Europe Cup. Fifteen countries participate. Initially, this WDF Europe Cup would be played in Granada, Spain, but the Spanish Darts Federation unfortunately had to give the organisation back to the WDF. The Finnish Darts Organization jumped in to help and to allow the tournament to continue. The question was again who could beat the favourite English team, this time the English had to do it for the first time without Eric Bristow.

The semi-finals of the singles event were almost an entirely English affair. Only Bob Anderson was not there, he lost 4-3 in the first round to Irishman Finian Fox. The surprise in the semi-finals was German ace Bernd Hebecker. En route to the semi-finals he beat Jocky Wilson with 4-1 in the second round. 

In his semi-final the German narrowly lost 4-3 to the English captain John Lowe. In the second semi-final Phil Taylor defeated his teammate Alan Warriner 4-2. World Champion Phil Taylor won the final on stage with 4-2 against John Lowe. As a result, Taylor became the second player, after John Lowe, to successfully defend his WDF Europe Cup title.
