the world championships the defending Finland is under 18 years of age at the world championships two after the match, surprisingly, without any points.

Finland face sweden in the play by the games in the block again on Sunday in the Czech republic and on Tuesday the Swiss.

in Practice, it is already clear that these at least one must remain in the table in the back, so the little lion from a block in the top four and the semi-finals.

Otherwise, the team was forced to defend the series true fall qualifier, i.e. the best of the three -match series in the second begin block jumbo.

Bad melting

the start of the Tournament was fantastic: Finland lead in Thursday's opening match in the second period against Canada 3-0 and played the dominance – until it all started to go wrong.

Canada outnumbered the paint and hit after four of the goals. English melt 3-5-defeat, and the same pace continued Friday, when Belarus ran out 4-0 lead.

So nine rear shock goals in a row!

in pursuit of the team woke up too late. I got only 3-4 losses and at the same time Finland's first loss to Belarus this age group world championships through the ages.

the Games were, of course, the different types, head coach Mika Marttila said.

– Canada game was sought relaxation and courage, when the world cup's top young players are packing a little nervous to run. Early success was achieved, but Canada has scoring in his blood, and the first paint to give them strength. We it again a little took gaming and self-confidence.

– of course it left a bitter taste, when you lead 3-0 and lose the paint – or the last, still empty, Marttila amount to Canada-defeat.

”look at the taste”

late-after the game, Finland had a small rushing to prepare for the next day's match.

– Late game you extract it, and it was half past twelve, when I was get the package.

Belarus was surprised Thursday before the opening match in the Czech republic and draws from that exaltation and self-confidence of the Finnish encounter.

– Mentally and physically, we little cautious start, Marttila granted.

– a Little watching the taste, and the guy scored the first goal of superiority and got power from it.

as no surprise Belarus's strength is not in finland to become.

I was pretty accurate in Belarus through, and it is a real struggle and a physical group.

in This information, despite the Usa stayed just on the physical side two.

– the Struggle - and the loose puck in the game was being soft. the Taponen Scrooge left the paint alone, when they place, which should, were the quality of places.

– in light of the Numbers the situation was after two sets. pretty creepy 0-3. At halftime there was also the psychological half way through. A hockey game is by no means impossible come from behind, alongside, and over, Marttila said – and on this subject Canada had just issued a Finnish lesson.

Belarus did, however, still the fourth goal in the third period to begin.

It didn't help the situation, but when I was opening the paint, it's a little liberated gaming. The second and third goals and they were still pushed the mass of the fourth, Marttila times.

the equalizing fourth goal did not come.

Pressure is enough

on Sunday at 16: 30, Finland faced the Czech republic, which in the opening match when they lost to Belarus as well 3-4-numbers than Finland. Yesterday the Czech republic to repair the damage by crushing Switzerland 8-2.

the Two-match round after only Finland and Switzerland are zero.

Marttila, Finland needs to touch, above all, smoothness.

– It is without doubt the biggest issue, and it is being discussed.

Saturday was the team the day off, but in the evening it convenes a meeting.

– was demolished yet Friday's game and a bit of it, to whom we are responsible. Comes with a wide range of pressure as it should be, when the species of interest. Comes with performance pressure and an external pressure from the media, from parents, agents and other, Marttila know.

the List can add at least another NHL scouts.

– It belongs in this picture, and it has for a year been talking about, that when it comes to the h-moment, so is it sufficiently ready.

”don't panic”

Although Finland is totisessa place, Marttila wants to avoid panic moods.

– This should see a lot of opportunity. Nervous can, but fear not. Good performance requires a little tension and wait for the mood, but gotta be brave and trust your own affairs.

– Not skills and knowledge are not lost. We had a good MM-camps and practice matches. Yes is the continuation of the mind, the confident feeling, Marttila insurance.
