With 11 points out of 12 possible and four victories in as many matches, Switzerland has so far fulfilled its mission. She will now take a day off.

After 4 victories in as many matches, Switzerland will take a day off.

“We can be a little more relaxed now.” Without admitting it, Patrick Fischer nevertheless recognized in one sentence that these four victories for the Swiss team had a positive effect and that they took a little pressure off everyone’s shoulders. “But we haven’t won anything yet,” slips Andrea Glauser, as if to remind us that there is no title awarded to teams who have won their first four games in the group stage.

And already mentioning the quarter-finals is the assurance of coming across a coach who does not want to project too far ahead. “We’re not there yet,” specifies Fischer. We take it day by day. These four victories naturally infuse a good feeling within the team, but we still have to grow as a team. Each day.”

Free time Thursday

The Zougois must manage his group and not pull too hard. This is certainly why the players will have free time on Thursday. “There is no program for the players,” he concedes. It’s important for the head. In the evening we will all go to eat together and on Friday we will meet on the ice to prepare for the weekend and the duels against Denmark and Canada.

In talking with the players, they see these first four matches as a step forward. “We take it as a finished first half,” explains LHC defender Andrea Glauser. Then come three matches on Saturday, Sunday and Tuesday. There, we will have to take a step forward and improve. We will analyze the video and see the points to correct, because there are always some.

Another point put forward by the Fribourgeois, the fact that Switzerland had to fight in each outing. “It feels good,” he concludes. Because these matches were tough where we had to go for victory each time.”
