2014 Champions Challenge winners Korea upset the Hero FIH World Rankings with a surprise 2-0 win over Belgium’s Red Lions to make a superb start to the Hero Hockey Champions Trophy 2016 on day one in London. 

The Belgians (WR: 5) found themselves 1-0 down at the half time break thanks to a penalty corner strike from Korea’s Yang Jihun, before a third quarter effort from Jung Manjae completed the match scoring and ensured that the ninth ranked team made the perfect start to their Champions Trophy campaign. 

Although the Koreans will be justifiably delighted with the result, Belgium will rue the absence of injured penalty corner stars Tom Boon and Loïck Luypaert, with the team failing to convert any of their nine penalty corner attempts while Korea scored from their only penalty corner opportunity of the match. 

When asked by pitch side commentator Mike Absolom whether or not the result would ruin Belgium’s Champions Trophy title challenge, Red Lions star Cédric Charlier said: “No, not at all. I think we will improve during the tournament, and I think we did some good stuff but lacked a bit of efficiency today. If we correct that for the next game then we will be ok.” 

Korean veteran Seo Jongho, who made his Champions Trophy debut way back in 1999 and has returned to international duty after an absence of three years, said:  “Before the match, we were a little bit worried, as we have so many young players who are playing their first tournament, and the Champions Trophy is a big tournament. Today’s match was very hard, but hopefully after the game we can start feeling better and our young players can learn from this good experience today. I want them to enjoy this tournament.”
