It was a big disappointment after the loss in the bronze match, but when you ask about the future, the Swedes are positive.

- I am very optimistic.

We have a young squad and we still have a blast.

This time we almost had a little snap.

It is a good lesson for the future considering that we are still so young, says Hampus Wanne.

Confederation captain Glenn Solberg believes that they have done well to make it to the semi-finals.

- There are many who think a lot.

But they have to understand that Spain, Denmark and France are the three best teams in the world.

People need to understand that.

If you look at the last 10-15 years, you will see that they are the best.

We want to get there and we will fight very hard for it.

We have developed a lot in recent years, he says.

He believes that hard work awaits before the EC and Olympics next year.

In the EC, you have to defend your gold.

- If we are to keep up, we have to go home and train and develop further.

So is sport.

If everyone gets a little better, we get a little better, says Solberg.
