Prague – Several hundred fans this evening filled an outdoor restaurant in Prague’s Riegrovy sady during a match between Czech hockey players and Canada for promotion to the World Cup finals. They watched the match broadcast on the big screen in Czech hockey jerseys, others took the children with them. With the increase in the difference in the score between those present, she stumbled, but despite the loss of the Czech team 1: 6, in the end they rewarded the players with applause.
The final round of applause was significantly weaker than the storms of cheers and pints after David Krejčí’s goal with which the Czech hockey players took the lead. On the other hand, Canada’s first goal at the end of the first period of the fans was saddened. They applauded the raids on the Canadian goal and applauded the successful interventions of the Czech goalkeeper Karel Vejmelka. On the contrary, anger and a wave of disagreement caused Canadian disturbances to Radek Pastrňák or Jiří Černoch.
From the third Canadian goal, sadness prevailed on the spectators’ faces. One of the few stormy reactions was provoked by Pastrňák’s unsuccessful attempt in the last third. Even the cheerleader, who reappeared on the roof above the screen, can’t pump up the audience.
Today, the television broadcast of the Czech seven in the Czech Republic offered a lot of pubs, which were supposed to ensure high attendance. The Prague City Council announced on Friday that a large screen will appear in the city center only if the Czech team reaches the finals. After today’s loss to Canada, it is clear that this will not happen.
