They were losing 0:2 to the Belarus team and only after a decisive first goal by Zagrapan did the wheel of fortune turn. After other goals from Čiernik and two from Bartovič, Slovaks won over their rivals 4:2, the Sme daily wrote on its website.

The next Slovak match will be on Thursday with Kazakhstan.
