Tristan White scored his second goal in two games to help reigning World champions Australia claim a hard earned triumph over Belgium’s Red Lions on the second match of day four at the men’s Hero Hockey Champions Trophy in London. The result leaves the Kookaburras on the verge of securing a place in Friday’s competition final, moving them onto ten points and only requiring only a draw in their final pool match against India on Thursday.  
The contest - a rematch of the title match at last year’s Hero Hockey World League Final, which Australia won 2-1 - was close throughout, although it was the Australians who proved themselves most deadly in front of goal. Glenn Turner broke the deadlock eight minutes after half time, volleying in from close range before White drilled home from the top of the circle eleven minutes from the end. It was White’s fifth goal in 79 appearances, but second in successive matches following his strike in Australia’s victory over Germany on Monday. 
“I don’t score too many goals, as everyone keeps reminding me”, said Australia’s Tristan White, a player clearly relishing stepping up from the defensive line into the Kookaburras midfield. “They are just falling for me, I am just the guy in the right place at the right time. I’d say that they are team goals forced through pressure, but if someone is going to be there to hit it in and that is me than I’m happy with that. We always knew that it would be a tough match as they are really fit and came at us hard. They were really strong in the first half and caught us on the back foot a little bit. In the end it was a great win and we are looking good for a place in the final with one game to go.”
