What they said - Sweden v Belarus

Sweden coach Glenn Solberg described his side's 26:26 draw with Belarus as a satisfactory result, despite losing the lead in the final seconds of the game.

"I'm happy with the point despite it being late, we came back from eight goals down," said Solberg.

"We didn't have the speed or the strength and Belarus started way better than us.

"We got back into the game in the second period, but we succeeded in getting a point. I'm not focusing on the fact that we lost two points, but that a point will help us going forward."

Sweden's goal machine Hampus Wanne agreed.

"I had hoped for a win but a draw isn't bad either," said Wanne.

"We played well, especially in the second period and we came back from far behind. I'm happy with my second player of the match accolade but this is a team effort. Without them I wouldn't do this."

Belarus coach Yuri Shevtsov was satisfied too.

"I'm happy because this was a difficult game, we were better in the beginning and our defence was good but it got worse which the Swedes took advantage of," said Shevtsov.

"I'm proud of my team and the result and the point, we will fight till the end. The game against Egypt will be difficult, especially playing at home."
