Russia's U18 women have played three friendly matches in the Czech Republic


With new head coach Evgeny Bobariko, the Russian youth women's national team played three friendly matches against their Czech Republic hosts. Russia won two games 3:2 and 5:2 respectively, while dropping one game 4:5.

Evgeny Bobariko, Russia women's U18 head coach:

- Overall, the coaches are satisfied with the three matches. Unfortunately, we lost the second fixture after leading 4:2, and our poor defensive mistakes made us pay. For a lot of players, this was their first national team experience, and some did well while others got a bit lost. Nevertheless, I would like to note that all of the girls tried hard during the training process.

In the near future, we will have another training camp and some more friendlies in Germany. They will take place during mid-September. We will have more of our stronger players in that squad, and the ZHL clubs will let their players join up with us.

After analysing these matches in the Czech Republic, we have spoken with all of the players and reiterated that they will not make the national team for what they have achieved in the past. The best players will be picked, and we will follow their matches in the championship. Everyone has a chance to make the World Championship roster.
