U20 national team at the World Cup in Canada

1:9 debacle must not wipe away good group phase

In the end, the U20 national team left a desolate impression at the World Cup. But before that, the team in Canada showed more than was to be expected. The dog is buried elsewhere.


The 1: 3 in the 1: 9 debacle against the Czechs in the quarter-finals: Goalie Kevin Pasche, defender Dario Sidler and Slovakian Marcel Marcel are in goal.

With their appearances in the group phase, the U20 national team had created hopes, which then evaporated despite a perfect start in the quarter-finals against the Czech Republic. The teenagers felt like a balloon being deflated. The young Swiss lost their step completely, showed by far their worst performance of the tournament and were swept off the ice by the strong, goal-hungry Czechs with a score of 1:9.

A slap in the face for Marco Bayer’s team, a humiliation for Swiss ice hockey. It showed what was already known before the tournament: the gap between the best hockey nations in the world and the Swiss is large, and the difference in terms of individual class is considerable.
