For a long time, it seemed that Russian aid would not be received, so Czech hockey players will have to fight for the Slovaks on Tuesday against advancing to the World Cup qualifiers in Riga. In the end, Sporna turned the game over with the Swedes, beating them 3: 2 in extra time, thus securing a place in the quarter-finals for Philippe Paishan’s side. As for the Three Crowns selection, on the other hand, the tournament ends.
After a 2: 1 p.m. win after separate raids on Denmark, the Czechs learned that they could slide into the knockout part on Monday evening. They needed any victory for the Russians over the Swedes, who in this case would definitely be out of the game. That happened in the end.
Thus the Czechs are sure they will not miss the quarter-finals before their final group match against Slovakia on Tuesday. Not even if they surrender to their former Federalist partner in the usual time.
The Russians, Swiss and Slovaks are also confident of the group’s progress ahead of Tuesday’s duels.
If the Swiss get at least a point against Britain on Tuesday, the Czechs will finish third (in a 60-minute win over the Slovaks) or fourth and face the winner in the quarter-finals, or the second team. From Group B. It is already certain that the posts will end in Finland and the USA. You just don’t know in any order yet.
In the quarter-finals, the Czechs will have a very difficult turnaround.
