Every win is an important win. Personally, it was more difficult for me to play against the Poles. Maybe I wasn’t used to the ice or they were back in the big league on emotions.

Latvian hockey players took the lead in the third period, but about three minutes before the end of regular time, the French equalized the result.

“We have to learn – if we win 2:1, then we have to keep the game. The fans probably have gray hair, but we are happy that we are winning and giving positive emotions. Of course, it’s difficult, but every point is important,” explained Dzierkals.

He scored an assist in this match, pulling three opposing hockey players on himself during Rodrigo Ābola’s goal-scoring episode and freeing his replacement partner. The first line of forwards of the Latvian national team Daugaviņš-Ābols-Dzierkals is the most productive in this championship.

I play my game and try to work for the team. The main thing is that our shift is scoring goals. You have to keep working and go for the goal.
