Ice Hockey World Cup: France loses at the last second to Latvia

After falling against Kazakhstan the day before, the French ice hockey team lost again against Latvia (3-2, ap.), losing at the last second on Sunday at the world championship in the Czech Republic.

This defeat complicates the objective of remaining in the world elite for French hockey players, who will absolutely have to beat Poland in their third match, Tuesday (8:20 p.m.), to continue to hope.

Against the Latvians, the Blues had started well. The returning Stéphane Da Costa was the first to find the fault (16th), before the Latvians equalized (42nd) then took the lead (51st).

In a physical game, punctuated by numerous skirmishes, it took a goal from the other star of the France team, Pierre-Edouard Bellemare, to clinch extra time (56th).

It was finally after 4 minutes and 59 seconds of additional play, one second before the end of the match, that Latvian striker Kaspars Daugavins came to seal the victory for his team.
