‘We’re s**t and we know we are!’ British hockey team celebrates historic win at world championship
The British players won just one out of seven games at the championship scoring nine goals and letting 41 in the process.
On Monday, the British team beat France in the last game of the preliminary round to take their first win at the tournament which allowed them to stay in the top division of ice hockey.
The game was initially controlled by the French players who took a confident 3-0 lead in the second, leaving no doubt that they could easily outplay their less-experienced opponents.
However, the Brits not only tied the game at 3-3 but also stole the victory in overtime period, sending France to a lower division.
During their wild post-match celebrations the Brits chanted: ‘We’re s**t and we know we are!’ referring to their underwhelming performance in group A where they lost all but one match.
