Team Belarus conceded a fourth consecutive deafeat on Wednesday to Switzerland 0-3 (0-1, 0-1, 0-1). Dave Lewis' team lacked will and organization - exactly the way Aliaksandr Lukashenka described it yesterday. "They cannot play ice hockey," the head of state said. Speaking at a Victory Day gathering, he complainted he flet ashamed to watch how Belarus national team played. Lukashenka stressed the situation in Belarusian ice hockey was 'unadequate.' Today, his words apparently were not an inspiration.
Belarus has lost to Finland 2-3, Czech Republic 1-6 and Canada 0-6. They will play France on May 12, Slovenia on May 13 and Morway on May 16.
