Seven players from Storvreta IBK have been selected to the Swedish Men's National Team that will play at the Euro Floorball Tour in Lausanne, Switzerland April 22 to 24.
Sweden’s national team finishes the season in the Swiss city of Lausanne. April 22 to 24. They will play the four nations tournament called the Euro Floorball Tour (EFT) where they face Finland, the Czech Republic and Switzerland.
The team going to the EFT is full of players who are being considered for a spot on the World Floorball Championships squad.
Storvreta’s Victor Andersson - who has been very impressive during the season – will make his Men’s national team debut.
- This season has been brilliant in many ways for him. It has been an even and high level season. He has been a very important player in Storvreta’s second line. Maybe we did not see that he would be before the season started, but he is. He is a tricky player who has many fine values, says national team head coach Jan-Erik Vaara.
What does Sweden want to show at the EFT?
- We will continue on this path of playing with high intensity. We want to have high ambitions in our offensive game and need to snap up the defensive characteristics given how easy it was at the World Championship Qualifiers. We need to be more alert and careful when on defense. Which we will have to be considering our opponents.
Victor Andersson was a little shocked at the news.
– I got a phonecall and the headcoach told me they had selected me for the EFT. Of course I was really happy but also shocked since I haven’t even been considering the possibility, Victor Andersson reveals.
He doesn’t know what to expect of the EFT but he is really excited to represent Sweden and to show what he can do.
