The Czech team finished fourth in the Nations Cup, Fládr was the best scorer
The non-traditional opponent defeated the Czech team in the opening match 5: 2, in the battle for bronze Israel won 4: 2. “It simply came to our notice then. The Israelis were well equipped for strength and quickly finished the breaks. In the first match we soon led 2: 0, unfortunately after our mistakes we did not manage the match. In the second match, we wanted to break it and, after disappointment with the Hungarians, win the last match of the tournament, but we didn’t succeed. Israel prepared well for us in both matches and waited for our mistakes, which it then used, “saddened the newcomer in the national team Zdeněk Fládr from Blanensko.
