By late afternoon, the British had already lost their last chance to stay in the league. The team led by future Berliner Liam Kirk suffered their sixth defeat against Norway in the sixth preliminary round match 2:5 (0:3, 1:1, 1:1) and was eliminated for the fifth time after 1951, 1962, 1994. and 2022. Tuesday's final game against Austria in Prague (12.20pm) means nothing.

Four-time world champions Finland retained their place in the quarter-finals with a 3-1 (0-0, 0-0, 3-1) win over Denmark in Group A in Prague. Arch-rivals Sweden beat France 3-1 (0-0, 1-1, 2-0) early in Ostrava.
