Latvia’s national team beat Sweden 3-1 in the quarterfinals in front of their fans on Thursday to advance to the semi-finals like never before. Highest achievement in the history of Latvian hockey.

Meanwhile, Canada, which did not bring its strongest team to this world championship, defeated Finland, the winner of the previous year, 4-1 in the quarter-final match played in Tampere.

Latvia – Canada met at the World Championship on May 12, where Canadian ice hockey players celebrated a convincing 6-0 victory in the first match of the group tournament “Arena Riga”. Since then, Harija Vītoliņš’s subordinates have improved their performance significantly and they now have a six-game winning streak.
