The eighth to eleventh of September Sweden's men's national team will particpate in Finnkampen. The first game takes place in Umeå and the second in Vantaa. Storvreta players Viktor Klintsten, Robin Nilsberth, Mattias Samuelsson and Alexander Rudd have been selected to the team.
The men play at home in the Umeå Energy Arena September 8th, then away in Vantaa, Finland the 11th of September. Two games that mean a lot to the national team.
- All games are important, but of course even more important the closer the World Championships we get. We want to get the team together as well as the formations, says headcoach Jan-Erik Vaara.
Storvreta’s Robin Nilsberth is looking forward to working on the final details before the World Championships and believes that the team will do well even though it's early in the season.
- We had a training camp in the summer and we've played together for a long time so we will put in a good effort, says Robin Nilsberth.
Two games against Finland should be two tough games but this is not always the case.
- It tends to be about fifty-fifty. Some games are blow outs and some get really tight. We'll see how it goes this time, but of course we want to win.
When it comes to Storvreta the next event is a trip to Estonia on Thursday.
- It is the first long trip with the team this year. It is always good to get the group together even if Kristian (Adolfsson) is the only new player, it will be fun.
