Czech Republic face Slovakia in hockey in Sochi

The Czech Republic’s ice hockey team will face former federal partners Slovakia in a last-16 knock-out game at the Winter Olympics in Sochi on Tuesday evening. The countries, who both performed poorly in the group stage, have previously met twice at the Olympics, with the Czechs winning on both occasions. The winner will face the United States for a place in the semi-finals.
