Goalkeeper Jana Christianová became the oldest player in the history of the national team when she started at the age of 33 years and 197 days. She surpassed Magda Benešová, who played against Russia on May 19, 1995 at the European Championship in Adliswil, Switzerland, eight days before her 33rd birthday.

In the 11th minute, the Czech Republic was losing 0:2 after goals from the Kauppi twins. Finland captain Veera Kauppi opened the scoring at 4:58 before her sister Oona came through on the power play. Although Martina Řepková reduced in 97 seconds and Eliška Chudá equalized in the 23rd minute, Sara Piispaová restored Finland's lead in 32:13 and Hanna Niemelä increased the lead in 66 seconds.

In 34 seconds the home team was rejoicing thanks Dry. After 17 seconds of the final part, Oona Kauppiová restored the two-goal lead to the Northerners, and in the 43rd minute, Suchá brought the Czechs back into contact. Finland's win was confirmed by Veera Kauppiová.

Řepková scored the jubilee 1,200th goal of the Czech national team in history. “I didn't know that at all, but it sounds pretty nice. Scoring for the national team is always great and it doesn't matter what match it is. I'm very happy to have conquered this milestone,” she told the Czech floorball website.

“We lost, which of course we didn't want. We played our game until the half of the match and then we allowed ourselves to score two unnecessary quick goals, to which we were no longer able to react. We are sorry, but we probably now know where we made mistakes and it won't happen to us next time,” added Řepková.
