Sergei Golubovich: "I don't mind who we play against in the semi-final"

Head coach of the under 18 Russian national team, Sergei Golubovich, shared his opinions following the heavy defeat to the USA in the final group stage game of the World Hockey Challenge:

- A lot of the penalties which we took today were because of high sticking. I don't know why this happened. Overall, if we don't look at the result itself, we didn't play well. We simply need to forget this match and move forward. Will we attend the second game of the day? No, we will analyse the video footage. I don't mind who we play against in the semi-finals. The majority of teams here are one or two years older than our players, there aren't any weak sides.
