Background: The most important game today will probably be the match between USSR and Sweden, who of this two team will be number two and three or maybe four?
USSR is been very popularly here in Oslo, mostly because they never make any protest against the judge, as all other team do the whole time. They play a nice fast hockey, and some of the players will be as fine as some of the best from Canada's team.
Sweden got a help from over 4000 fans from Stockholm and Guthenborg there arrived Oslo in the last day, so Sweden are going to play this match as on a home field. But USSR got also help, thousand of public from Oslo are on their side, not because they do not like Sweden, but the Russian are really sportsmen on the ice, and this will something the public like, and understand. The Russian never start a fights against other players, but they will be ready to fight if there will be any assault against them. But after the fight they are also ready to excuse this little misunderstanding. Same will not always be possible to say about other nations teams.
The Ice Hockey organization hope, and think that it will be possible to get this championship to run, but it has been expensive, and the public has mostly been staying home, first now they are starting to come out of the bush.
