Netherlands vs. Latvia – Match Resume
Overall, the Dutch team again showed a pleasing performance and proofed that they are a rising floorball nation again. Latvia had a quick start, leading 3:0 after eight minutes, but the Dutch played a good game and even scored their golden goal by Kike Wolters late in the first period. Due to the Slovak victory against Hungary later the day, Latvia already qualified for Neuchatel after their second match. Like the Hungarians, the Dutch now needed to go for one of these “theoretical chances” in the direct clash between the two teams.
