    Congrats to Estonia! Home advantage is golden this year so far: Germany, Italy and Estonia are all promoting.

    Netherland may have been the strongest team - who knows? - but 37% of our members actually guessed right Estonia would return to Div 1 after being relegated last year. Most of them members, however, didn't get the relegating team right.

    Some comments on the participants

    China Not much to be said. They were outclassed here but are still likely to promote back in 2009. The team will lose its two best scorers Ge Tian and Han Le due to overaging but their starting goalie Han Pengfei is only a 1991 born so he will be around for three more tournaments.

    Croatia No tight games for Croatia this year. They were behind Estonia and Netherlands but well ahead the other three teams. Croatia will be a very interesting team to watch in the future and in the U18 this year. Only 4 players that were in Tallinn are ineligible for U18! Especially Borna Rendulic is someone to look to in the coming years. At only 15 years old he was Croatia's best scorer in the tournament with 10 points and 7 goals. I don't know what are the record points that a player has collected in U20 World championships (including all levels) but if Borna keeps developing he surely has a chance to a high total during the next four years.

    Estonia Great home tournament! But Estonia will be in trouble in Div I next year as almost all their top players will turn 20 during the coming year: Brandis, Jastrebov, Minin and Perov. At least goalie Rajevski is still around.

    Mexico Good effort for the Mexicans to stay in Div II. They will also lose a large chunk of players due to overaging.

    Netherlands Surely a disappointing ending for the Dutch. But most of their top guns will be back for next year: Dalhuisen, Nagtzaam, Hrelja, Mens, Houkes and Oosterveld.

    Spain Spain will lose their starting goalie Aaron Carretero but the 1990 born Adrian and Roberto Betran, Alejandro Pedraz and Juan Munoz will be scoring in the future too. They will be an interesting sight in this year's U18 tournament too. Are they Spain's "Golden generation"?

    U18 have great chance to win silever medal,I am sure that we can beat Korea...promotion...hmm...I think that our U18 can play equal with france,but our weak point could be goalies,not because of talent,because they will play maybe 10 games until wc U18

    Mexico was really tired and moodless against Spain.
