The U18 teams in that tournament consisted mostly of players that were born in 94 and 95, and since players born in 93 are also eligible for the upcoming tournament, the teams will be different.

I think they will end up in the relegation round, but manage to avoid relegation. Of course this is only an assumption without knowledge of the rosters.

I can't wait to see the preliminary rosters, and I am wondering if the coaches will stick predominantly with players from 93 or if they will pick a fair number of younger players.
