Match Review

First up on the final day of the event were Egypt and Ukraine, and both teams were visibly keen to end their campaigns on a high note from the start, playing fast-flowing attacking hockey that had play move up and down the field. Egypt was able to finally gain an advantage just before the end of the first half when Hamada Atef converted a penalty corner, but Ukraine looked the stronger side after the break, attacking well and keeping play deep in the Egyptian half for long periods of time.

When the goal came, it was fiercely contested by the Egyptians, as the shot had come from outside the circle, but having been touched by the defending goalkeeper, it was deemed an own goal and thus the equalizer. The match turned into an open battle as both teams fought to tip the scales in their favor. There were no more goals however, until the dying minutes, when Iurii Moroz for Ukraine and Mohamed Edris for Egypt scored in quick succession.

The scoreline remained at 2-2 until the final whistle, and the two teams headed into a curious shoot-out that saw only a single attacker able to score out of the first nine attempts. Their one goal by Iurii Moroz was thus enough for Ukraine to win the shoot-out and the match, which propelled them into third place.
