Match Report

Czech Republic 5, Brazil 0

The Czech Republic earned its first win of the tournament with a convincing 5-0 victory against Brazil. The teams will meet again on Sunday in the fifth-place game.

The victory was a total team effort for the Czechs with five different players scoring the five goals. Four of the goals came from the open field, while the lone penalty corner marker was flicked in by Tomas Prochazka.

The perky Czechs put in one of their best performances of the tournament, playing a solid game and allowing very few mistakes. At the half the Czechs held a convincing 3-0 lead and the advantage allowed the team to relax a bit and focus on offense rather than its defensive mindset it had in previous games.

Another two second half goals, coming 20 minutes apart, put the icing on the cake of the first win. Brazil is still winless at the event and will look to rebound in the fifth-place game.
