World champions Australia bounced back from a two-goal deficit to defeat Olympic champions and Champions Trophy holders Germany in a pulsating second match of day three at the Hero Hockey Champions Trophy 2016 in London. 
Goals from Germany team captain Florian Fuchs and Tobias Hauke put Die Honamas into a commanding lead at the end of the first quarter, but the Kookaburras hit back in the second quarter thanks to open play strikes from Glenn Turner and Tristan White before Fuchs struck again to give Germany a 3-2 lead at half time. Teenage scoring sensation Blake Govers restored parity with a blistering third quarter penalty corner, with Aran Zelewski scoring the winner seven minutes from full time. 
The result means that Australia move onto seven points and remain unbeaten after three matches, giving them an excellent chance of reaching the Friday’s competition final. Germany remain on two points and will need a strong finish to the round-robin phase if they are to successfully defend their Champions Trophy title. 
"I’m really happy with the performance”, said Australia’s Simon Orchard, who was playing his 200th senior international for the Kookaburras. We showed a bit of grit, determination and character, which sometimes with a younger group of players can be in question, but it was really pleasing to go down 2-0 early with things not going exactly our way, but we fought back and its just reward for a really good effort in the rain." 
On reaching his caps milestone, Orchard said: “It is an honour and a privilege to represent Australia once, let alone 200 times so I’m sure that when I finish my career I sit back and look at this memory fondly. It was a really great contest with Germany, continuing the long-standing rivalry that we have with one another.”
