Iceland v Latvia

The first period of the match ended in 1-1 when first Daniels Janis Anis (LAT) and then Andreas Stefansson (ISL) scored. The goal from Stefansson is one of the finest of the whole event to be fair. Latvia took the lead in the second period and score four more goals, finishing the second period in 5-1. Stefansson scored another goal in the last period but it did not help Iceland anymore as the final score was 9-3 for Latvia.
