“I congratulate the boys on their victory. It was not easy to start this home tournament. There was nervousness and a certain burden, but it is great that we started with a victory. Tomorrow we play against Sweden – which is a strong team too. Now we have to rest well in order to play as good as we can tomorrow, which is very important.”
