England drew the second of two matches against the Olympic and World Champions in an end to end match which saw six goals shared between the two sides.
Richard Braun and Christoph Zeller put the hosts 2-0 ahead before two penalty corner goals in three minutes from Surbiton’s Matt Daly and a goal from Bowdon’s Simon Egerton – in what was just his second international appearance – after some good work down the right from Reading’s Jonty Clarke, put England 3-2 up. However, Oliver Korn cancelled out the lead with a goal from open play to rescue the draw for Germany.
England Manager Pete Nicholson commented “There was a marked improvement from yesterday in today’s match. Play was pretty even with chances at both ends and both keepers made good saves. The second half was a feisty affair which was good as we were very competitive.”
Reading’s Iain MacKay received a knock to his leg during the match and as a result only played 10 minutes throughout the game.
England have a busy year ahead with the EuroHockey Nations Championships in Amsterdam in August and the ABN AMRO Champions Trophy in Melbourne in December.
