- We worked on our mistakes today at training. At this tournament, the main thing for me is that the team won a medal, and of course I want to help my teammates achieve that. How is Espoo as a city? I like it here, the sun is shining and that always makes you feel great. It's a nice city. In the evening, we will analyse how Switzerland play, and if we have time, we'll also watch the Finland - USA match. I think it will be a very interesting game.
