A chain is only as strong as its weakest link
This time I won't fully analyze this tournament, I will highlight few facts. Latvians couldn't manage any regulation victory and couldn't score more than two goals in any of the games. Despite the good shot accuracy, Latvians were last in tournament in shots on goal - 104 shots on goal in 7 games.
But there was good things too Lauris Dārziņš has repeated the best scored points record 3+7 in 7 games, this is the only second time when Latvian representative player has scored at least 10 point in tournament, the second is Oļegs Znaroks with 3+7 in 8 games.
The most memorable moment of the tournament.
I didn't choose this moment because of the save or the breakaway. If France would score on this breakaway I wouldn't be sad, I think that this moment just shows just sadness.
