Title holders and reigning Olympic champions Germany overturned a two goal deficit for the second time in two days to snatch a 4-4 draw against Belgium in a rain-affected match on day two at the Hero Hockey Champions Trophy 2016 in London. 

Belgium’s Red Lions fell behind to their European rivals twice before the half time break, with Sebastian Dockier and Arthur van Doren cancelling out strikes from Germany’s Tobias Hauke and Marco Miltkau. 

A torrential rainstorm made conditions unplayable and delayed the restart by over 30 minutes. When the match eventually resumed it was Germany who looked the stronger, but they soon found themselves 4-2 down thanks to efforts from Alexandre de Paeuw and a brilliant individual effort from Florent van Aubel, who ensured his 150th international appearance was one that everyone would remember. 

Just when it seemed that a Red Lions victory was on the cards, Die Honamas hit back with two goals in three minutes. Miltkau grabbed his second before Oli Korn gave the Germans their second draw from two matches. 

“It was good that we got a draw in the end, coming back from two goals down is good to see and shows that we can come back”, said Nico Jacobi, who alongside compatriot Benedikt Fürk played his 100th senior international match. “The first half was really positive ahead of our next games and in terms of our progress towards Rio. I think we are in a good way.”

Red Lions coach Shane McLeod said:  “We are always looking for a win but it was a much better performance in many areas than yesterday and I’m happy about that. To blow a two goal lead, even in the modern game as it is, is a little bit frustrating but it was a good game of hockey. I think the players did a pretty good job to cope with the conditions. They are good athletes who have been in many challenging situations and this was another one, and they will bank that. It did slow the game down and I am not sure that worked in our favour, to be honest.”
