Bandy bronze disappointment to Swedes

In bandy, even the World Cup bronze was a disappointment to the Swedish team. The Swedes have made it to the finals in every World cup since 1999. Now the 14-3 victory over Kazakhstan on Sunday "only" brought them bronze.

It was the crushing defeat against Russia on Saturday, that was lost by 2-3, which sealed the fate of the Swedes. The Russians went on to win against finland in the finals.

The goal rich semi-finals, played under windy and even snowy conditions in the Russian town of Kazan, was only a bit of consolation to the Swedes, who have got used to climbing higher on the winners' stand.
