05-05-2007

The national ice hockey team coached by Alois Hadamczik and led by team captain David Vyborny faces an important match at the Ice Hockey World Championship in Moscow on Saturday evening. The Czechs, who finished top of their group in the first round, want to put qualifying for the quarter final playoffs back on track after suffering a surprising 2:0 upset at the hands of Germany earlier this week. On Saturday the Czechs will face former compatriots Slovakia. According to the Slovak press the game's outcome will depend on which team has the greater inner-strength and "heart".
