The head coach of the Russian national hockey team Valery Bragin spoke about the mistakes made in the quarterfinals of the World Cup against Canada.
The Russian national team, in the status of a clear favorite, lost to the Canadians in overtime – 1: 2. The coach of the Russian team Valery Bragin admitted that the coaching staff made several mistakes in this meeting.
“One of the main mistakes, I think, was insufficient communication to the players of the task to continue to go into pressure with the score 1: 0, and not to roll back and try to maintain a minimal advantage,” Bragin told RIA Novosti.
Also, the mentor of the Russians admitted that the wrong combinations of players were chosen for overtime, who could not cope with defensive actions.
