Czechs to face US for ice hockey world championships bronze position

In ice hockey, the Czechs will face the US for the bronze medal position in the world championships on Sunday afternoon. The US were beaten 4:0 by Russia, the current champions, who will compete with Canada for first place on Sunday night. The US-Russia contest remained goalless until the 47th minute when Sergei Mozyakin broke the deadlock. Goals followed in the 51st, 55th, and 58th minutes. Earlier, Czech star Jaromír Jágr said his team’s main problem had been not to convert early chances in the game against Canada. Canada scored without reply in the first two periods and controlled much of the match.
