Recall that the top four teams will qualify for the quarter-finals of the group of eight teams, which also includes teams such as Slovenia, Kazakhstan, Slovakia and Latvia.
It should be noted that the two teams last faced each other almost exactly a year ago. Specifically, on May 28, 2022, in the semi-finals of the World Cup, Canada turned out to be much better, who won 6: 1, but in the final lost to Finland 3: 4 after extra time. In the match for third place, the Czechs defeated another representative of North America – the USA 8:4.
The Czechs have been waiting for a win against Canada for almost six years.
