The men’s U19 WFC is about to have its most important day so far: the last day of the group stage!
In group A of division A, Finland meets Latvia while Switzerland faces Norway. The Fins have already qualified for the semifinals, but all other teams in this group still have a shot at the second SF ticket. Group B’s games are Sweden – Denmark and Czech Republic – Slovakia. Here, the Czechs have gotten the first ticket to the semifinals already.
In division B, group C, Poland plays against Russia, while the USA meets Japan. Japan has been surprising so far, but without results yet. They might win today, but it won’t help them as it’s already sure Poland and Russia move on to the next stage. The final games of the group stage are the ones from group D: New Zealand vs. Canada and Slovenia vs. Germany. However, in this group, Germany and Slovenia know they move up to the SF already.
