Parviainen: It was difficult to find motivation
After yesterday’s semifinal loss with Germany, the Austrian national team also lost in the 13th place game against the United States. As the coach admitted after the game, the players were not hundred percent concentrated on the game.

“It’s really difficult to find motivation for such a game,” the head coach Iiro Parviainen said. “Well, there was nothing special going on. To be honest, I expected a rather boring game.” The team lead by the captain Michael Schachner played two games within seventeen hours with only eleven field players. “We didn’t succeed in the semifinal and now it’s high time for the players to enjoy the Championship in a different way as well,” said Parviainen while laughing.
