Goal by HC Salavat Yulaev forward Amirov helped Russian national team reach quarterfinals
On December 30, the Russian youth ice hockey team defeated the Austrian team (7: 1) in Edmonton and reached the quarterfinals of the 2021 IIHF World Junior Championship. As part of our team, the first was the striker of the Ufa hockey club Salavat Yulaev Rodion Amirov.
Already in the fifth minute, the Russians organized a scoring attack, but the Austrians had no choice but to stop Yegor Chinahov, breaking the rules. The player himself was injured, and Rodion Amirov went to strike a shootout. The Ufa forward was successful — 1: 0.
Also, Amirov assisted in the third goal against Austria. Together with Knyazev, he helped arrange a double for Podkolzin.
On December 31, Igor Larionov's players will meet with the Swedish national team in the group stage. The match kicks off at 7:30 am Ufa time. The live broadcast is scheduled for Channel One and the Ice Hockey Federation of Russia official website.
