Great Britain play their second game of the World Championship as they face world number two seeds Finland at the O2 Arena in Prague.

The two sides go head-to-head at 12:20 (11:20 UK time) on the back of contrasting defeats in their opening games.

GB performed heroically in their 4-2 loss to world number one Canada, while Finland will be disappointed with an opening-day 1-0 defeat by hosts Czechia after penalty-shots.

Finland have been in the top flight since 1951 and have four gold medals to their name in 1995, 2011, 2019 and 2022.

Team News
Great Britain have no injury worries so have a fully-fit 25-man roster to choose from.

Defenceman Josh Tetlow and forward Sean Norris were the out-skaters who were healthy scratches yesterday and the coaching staff will have to decide whether to bring either or both into the line-up, or stick with yesterday’s 22-man roster.

Finland have a full 25-player team to choose from for this lunchtime’s game.

Their roster includes four players currently in the NHL – Olli Maatta (Detroit Red Wings), Jesse Puljujrvi (Pittsburgh Penguins), Valtteri Puustinen (Pittsburgh Penguins) and Mikael Granlund (San Jose Sharks).

Previous Meetings
GB and Finland have met four times in total at a World Championship with two wins each.

Britain beat Finland 6-3 in 1951 and 7-5 in 1962, but Finland won 5-0 on GB’s return to the top level in 2019 in Slovakia.

The two sides also met at the 2023 World Championship in Tampere with Finland skating to a 6-0 victory on home ice.
