Latvians have done their best and now all what's left is to wait for hopefully successful outcome in the two last games of the group.

I somehow think Russia might be the stronger team in the group as yeah, they lost to Germans but it was probably due to lack of motivation or something as they easily cruised past Swiss and Latvia even despite both these teams were fully motivated to play vs Russia for victory. Yeah one might say Sweden also didn't have much problem with Germany or Swiss but our game agaisnt them 2 days ago proved that Sweden is probably not always as good as they think they are. Or maybe it was also lack of concentration on Swedes side.

Anyway I want to see what this bulky Russian team can do vs a strong opponent. The coach has tried to create some kind of mix of team Canada and Russia in one squad, tyhe physical strength and Soviet school skills... will be interesting to watch how they play tomorrow.
