- For Sweden, it was a loss in Group A of Switzerland in the first World Cup match. Russia does not give an opportunity to an outsider in Great Britain.

Group A: Denmark surprised Sweden
Denmark-Sweden 4: 3: Sweden, the 11-time world champion, started with a defeat in the World Cup in Riga. In 3: 4 against Denmark, “Tre Kronor” advanced 1: 0 and 2: 1, before the Danes could turn it 3: 2 at the end of the middle third thanks to a double whammy in 36 seconds. Niklas Jensen, the Helsinki winger, stood out among the Danes with three goals and one assists. Denmark had served the Swedes the first goal with a disastrous bad pass directly to Karl Klingberg’s shovel on a silver platter.
Great Britain-Russia 1: 7: Foreign Great Britain had no chance against Russia. After just 11 minutes, the British trailed 4-0 and eventually lost 7-1 only because the favorite had significantly slowed the pace after the furious start. For Russia, this is the second victory in the World Cup after 4: 3 against the Czech Republic.
Group Two: Finland successfully begins its title defense
Finland-USA 2: 1: Finland, who won the last World Cup in Denmark two years ago, began their mission to defend their title in Riga with a 2-1 victory over the United States. Atti Ohtama and Eru Bäkkarenen scored the Finnish goals within 9 minutes in third place. Jason Robertson scored for the USA shortly before the second half. The US national team has close to a tie several times in the final stages, but it is no longer successful.
Norway – Germany 1: 5: Less than 24 hours after the 9: 4 match against Italy, Germany also won their second World Cup match. The 2018 Olympic silver winner beat Norway 5-1 and guaranteed Tony Söderholm’s team their first World Cup victory against Norway since 2007.
