Match Review GER - PAK 5-0

Germany thrash Pakistan to stay top of Pool D
Germany 5-0 Pakistan

European champions Germany were in outstanding goal-scoring form at the start of Day 5 here at the Owen G Glenn FIH Champions Trophy in Auckland, New Zealand, cruising to a 5-0 win over Pakistan. Goals from Tobias Matania, Jan-Marco Montag, Benjamin Wess, Florian Fuchs and Benedikt Fürk ensured that Germany will play in the 5th place play-off game on Sunday.

Germany were well on top of the majority of the first half and deservedly took the lead when Tobias Matania sent a low penalty corner shot into the bottom right corner after 13 minutes. Their advantage was doubled in the 26th minute thanks to Jan-Marco Montag, who sent a ferocious penalty corner flick into the top right corner to leave Pakistan reeling.

Germany pressed their opponents deep into their own territory throughout the first half and continued their dominance in the second when Benjamin Wess rattled in a field goal seven minutes after the break to make the score 3-0. A fourth goal arrived in the 49th minute thanks to 2011 FIH Young Player of the Year nominee Florian Fuchs, who got a crucial touch on a pass from Timo Wess to find the bottom corner.

Eight minutes from the end of the game Germany completed the scoring, and what a goal it was. A failed Pakistan penalty corner was quickly turned into a counter-attack thanks to a great pass from Timo Wess to Fuchs who surged into the circle before passing to the unmarked Benedikt Fürk who gloriously chipped the ball over the oncoming keeper.

The result means that Pakistan will play in the 7th-8th play-off match.
