Berruto wants better effort from Finland in rematch

Over 6,000 fans saw Friday's match between Finland and Brazil

Tampere, Finland, July 3, 2009 – Finnish head coach Mauro Berruto was apologetic on Friday after his team's 0-3 loss to Brazil at Tampere Ice Hall.


"I am very sorry because over 6,000 spectators watched us lose this way. Tomorrow we must put in a better show for them," said Berruto.


"We have to improve in all aspects of our game. We must be better in attack, we must be tactically better and mentally also. Brazil was tactically better than us in the first match."


Brazilian head coach Bernardo Rezende expects a harder match on Saturday.


"We hope we can play as well as on Friday. We know that Finland can play better."
