Belarus was still at a disadvantage at the end of the first half, and although they were able to equalize, they had already turned in the final third with a 3-1 British lead. More than 12 minutes before the end, Britain extended their lead to a three-goal goal, but to no avail the match seemed smooth, with 2:26 before the bagpipes, Belarus became increasingly distant. Ultimately, the islanders retained their advantage, so after defeating the French in 2019, they pulled off another big scalp.
Canada led against Norway in less than 22 seconds, and Adam Henrique scored in the third half. True, in the second half, the Norwegians worked unfavorably in just over a minute and a half, but the Canadians scored two more goals for the opponent’s goal, winning 4-2.
