Belgium and Great Britain played out a dramatic 3-3 draw in the final pool match at the Hero Hockey Champions Trophy 2016 in London, a result which helped neither as India held onto second place in the table to set up a meeting with Australia in Friday’s competition final. 

Belgium’s Red Lions needed less than 40 seconds to take the lead against the home favourites, with Thomas Briels guiding a cross into the roof of George Pinner’s net before GB captain Barry Middleton levelled with a penalty corner deflection five minutes before half time. Belgium’s Loick Luypaert gave his side a 3-1 lead with a brace of penalty corner drag-flicks either side of the break, putting the Red Lions within one goal of sealing their own place in the competition final. However, Great Britain’s decision to replace their goalkeeper with an outfield player with six minutes remaining proved significant, with David Ames and Barry Middleton tying the match as the Belgians lost their discipline. 

I think we’ll look back on that match and think it was really one that we should have won”, said Great Britain midfielder Harry Martin after the match, knowing that victory would have secured a place in the event final against Australia’s Kookaburras. “I think we controlled large parts of it and obviously it got pretty crazy towards the end. In the end we were pleased with a draw, but we definitely wanted a lot more from that match.”

Despite the disappointment of not reaching the final, Great Britain still have a chance of medaling at the event when they face Olympic champions Germany in Friday’s bronze medal match.
