We will have more practice before the most important event of the 2018 season. I wish good luck to all participants. Let the strongest team win.”

Andrejs Odinokovs, head coach of Latvia: “For us it is a very important event because we play with very strong competitors. Some of the players were injured before this tournament but we are ready to fight.”

Dzmitry Kot, head coach of Belarus: “This tournament comes before the European Championship qualifiers in January and we will use it as an opportunity to develop our game and try different playing combinations. This way we will have more experience for the more challenging competitions ahead.”
