Vojtech Vújtek, the Czech coach of the Slovak team, told the SITA newswire that his team sometimes does not feel well as the favourite, especially when under pressure of their position in the chart and knowing that they have to win to make it to quarterfinals. The Kazakhs are not a weak team at all, Vújtek added.
