Here’s the surprise, one of the hockey teams reached the semifinals for the first time

Sweden and Finland were also eliminated from the Ice Hockey World Cup.

In a big upset, Latvia qualified for the Ice Hockey World Cup semi-finals on Thursday after beating Sweden 3-1.

The Swedes mustered a tremendous force to kick the goal, but despite shooting 41 times, the puck fell into the net only once. The two teams won their third each, starting the last twenty minutes at 1-1, although the match was one-sided. Six minutes later, Latvia advanced for the second time with a goal from a counterattack, and then decided the final result, with a man in the middle of the match.

This was a historic achievement for the Latvian national team, because

His best World Championship finish to date was seventh, which he achieved three times, but never made the top four. In the semi-finals, he can beat Canada to reach the final.

With the Canadian team defeating the defending champions Finland 4-1 at the same time as the Latvia game. In the meeting of the participants in last year’s final, he presented a great pace and balanced game in the first two-thirds, but the Canadians scored in both periods against the Scandinavians. In the final third, even in the game, Canada outplayed its opponent and in the end achieved a confident success.
