Sweden won”the final” in the final minutes

12/9/2014 10:41:58 PM -

The match between the two rivals, Sweden and Finland, was, as expected, extremely tough, when they met in the group final in the WFC2014. And Sweden could call themselves VICTORS after the 5-2 win.

It was a real taste of the expected WFC final, when Finland and Sweden fought in the last group match of the Championship in Gothenburg. Scandinavium was almost full and the crowd cheered on the Swedish stars, but it was Finland who mockingly scored first. Sweden lost the ball to Eemeli Salin in play three to four and he got free and scored 1-0. Finland also managed to score 2-0 before Sweden woke up. Johan Samuelsson evened out the score to 2-1 and Patrik Malmström scored 2-2 in power play.  

The score at the beginning of the third period was 2-2, but it did not stand for long. In a delayed power play, Swedish player Kim Nilsson passed diagonally to Rasmus Enström, who took the shot immediately and scored 3-2. With only two minutes left of the match, Alexander Galante Carlström punctured the match when he swept the ball into the goal and 4-2 was a fact.
Veteran Karl-Johan Iraeus scored 5-2 in an open goal when Finland went all in for the goal.
