SOCHI, February 18. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s national ice hockey team should first win from Norway to qualify for the quarterfinals of the Sochi Olympics and then make further plans, says Zinetula Bilyaletdinov, the chief coach of the Russian national ice hockey team.

“All the players on the team know what they should do. They should prepare in earnest for the game against quite a strong rival,” Bilyaletdinov said.

He described the Norwegian team as a team with character. “We have already competed with them in the world championship (in 2012, Russia winning 5-2 in the quarterfinals - Itar-Tass). They are well-organized, and we are in for quite a challenging game for which we should seriously prepare,” Bilyaletdinov said. “We can cope with this rival. It is essential to aim to score,” he said.

The Russian national team won on February 16 the previous game in the Olympics against the Slovak team 1-0 on penalty shootout, failing to score a single goal in the regular time and extra time.

Russia-Norway match will be played in Sochi’s Bolshoi Ice Dome on February 18. The game starts at 16:30 Moscow time. The winner will play in the quarterfinals against Finland on February 19.
