The Spanish players entered to the game with very offensive style and after several good chances they scored in the power play.

But the Spaniard were slept by opponent´s performance and Team Great Britain scored from the unique rush. Danny Hutchinson appeared uncovered in front of the goal and decreased the difference. Closely before the end of first half the British even tie the game thanks to Nathan Finney.

The excited British team manage well enter to the 2nd half and completed turnover. Steve Cross with low shot netted third goal. But in the stunning finish Fernando Serrano led the game to the overtime.

The decision was made in 3rd minute by Jean Paul Bejarano who with individual effort sent his team to the World Cup Finals. The British will play for third spot.

"It was a tough game for us," described the autor of golden goal Bejarano. "Team Britan is not so bad we expected we are on the higher level. It was not the same as against the Czechs, there we did not attack at all. We were surprised by the difficult of this game. Maybe it was so hard beacuse of morning time. But I think that we will win in the finals. We relegated to B division and here it is easy."
