On Monday, the Slovak team lost 0:2 to Latvia in what the Sme daily called a feeble performance, writing that if the team does not improve before the championship, they might not advance even to the next round. Coach Glen Hanlon will announce the final line-up on Wednesday, May 5, Sme wrote on its website.
