In an amazing match, Austria showed an amazing comeback – and still lost to the mighty Canada.

For thirds, the record world champion lived up to his clear role as favourite: the Canadians played Austria dizzying at times. In the 38th minute, Pierre-Luc Dubois scored a goal to make the score 6-1 for the favourites. It seems that the exhibition has been read.

But the Austrian team, under the leadership of Swiss coach Roger Bader, did not give up and managed to achieve one of the greatest comebacks in the history of the World Cup. In the space of 16 minutes, the underdog went from 1:6 to 6:6, needing just 9 shots. Peter Schneider scored twice, while Embry striker Dominik Zwerger was also among the scorers. Minnesota's Marco Rossi's equalizer came 49 seconds before the final siren sounded.

Tavares sets the record straight (somewhat).

However, the Austrian “Stehof fairy tale” did not have a happy ending: only 15 seconds were played in overtime when Canadian captain John Tavares scored 7:6 and got the extra point for the “Ahorn Leafs”. This is the eighteenth victory for the Canadians in their seventeenth World Cup match against Austria (one tie).

“No one in the world believed in him after two-thirds. It feels like a bit of a victory,” Zwerger, elated after the success, told SRF.

In the table, Canada surpassed Switzerland and is now tied at the top, but with a better goal difference. Meanwhile, the Austrians were happy to pick up an unbudgeted point, their first in this tournament.
