Czechs are in the quarter-finals of the ice-hockey World Championship

World Championship in ice-hockey If you are in Prague at the moment, you may have noticed that many pubs and bars screen matches of the World Championship in ice-hockey, which takes place in Moscow at the moment. Ice-hockey is tremendously popular in the Czech Republic. People rushed to their televisions especially on yesterday evening: there was an important match Czech Republic – Canada and the Czech national team was threatened with elimination from the tournament.

It was a big drama: the Czechs needed at least a draw. Every time they scored, Canada always equalized soon. It was 3:3 two minutes before the end of the match and Canada played a power play. Luckily, the score stayed the same, so the Czech team is in the quarter-finals.

The Czech team will play against Sweden or Russia in the next round on Wednesday. So, maybe you will meet celebrating fans in the streets of Prague soon…
