Speaking after the game GB head coach Danny Kerry said, “We had a very quick debrief following yesterday’s game.  We knew exactly what we needed to do and I think we did it today.  I am still frustrated that we went into the break only one goal up after the number of chances we had but I am really pleased with the goals we did score, especially the second one because we have been doing a lot of work on that in training.”
