Forward Luke Ferrara says he will never forget his first Great Britain goal as he found the net in only his second World Championship appearance.
The 24-year-old gave GB an early lead against Kazakhstan before the tournament’s second seeds came back to secure a 6-1 victory.
“It was a very special moment and I won’t forget it,” said the Coventry Blaze forward.
“I thought we started the game really well and for the first 10 minutes we dominated the game.
“I wish the goal could have been part of a winning scoreline, but we can still take positives from how we played.”
GB’s next game in the Division 1 Group A tournament is tomorrow against Poland at 4pm (3pm UK time).
“We have a confident squad and we know we can lift ourselves after this defeat,” added Ferrara.
“We have already made an impact at this tournament and we want to continue to impress.”
