PARIS (AP) - Finding the net at the world championships may be easier than finding the right country for France’s hockey team.

A booking error sent the French team on a flight to Poland instead of Slovakia. So the players had to take a bus ride from Krakow to Kosice for the event.

The French Ice Hockey Federation says the players practiced on Thursday morning. They arrived in Kosice after an 180-mile bus ride on Wednesday.

France plays its first match against Switzerland on Friday. Chicago Blackhawks goaltender Cristobal Huet plays for France.

Olympic champion Canada and Belarus are also in Group B.
