Penalty corner expert Gonzalo Peillat scored twice as Argentina claimed a 3-0 over host nation India in the opening match of the men’s Hero Hockey World League Final 2015 in Raipur, India.

Following a vibrant, colourful and entertaining opening ceremony, a large crowd turned out to witness the host nation in action. However, it was Argentina’s Leones (Lions) that came away with all three points in this Pool B encounter.

The team coached by Carlos Retegui were in excellent form in the opening two quarters of the match, establishing a 2-0 lead ahead of half time. Prolific goal-scorer Peillat opened the scoring in the 3rd minute with a deflected penalty corner rocket that left Indian shot-stopper P.R. Sreejesh stranded, before Joaquin Menini scored from close range with another set piece.

Despite a powerful Rupinder Pal Singh shot being cleared off the line, Argentina were well worth their lead and continued to play excellent hockey in the third and fourth quarters. Eventually, a third goal arrived, with Peillat grabbing his second with a penalty corner drag-flick that sailed into the roof of the Indian net in overtime.

"We started very well, the intensity was very good”, said Argentina’s two goal hero Gonzalo Peillat after the match. “We earned enough corners. Now we need to think how we play against Holland as they have a really good team."

India coach Roleant Oltmans was disappointed by the result, stating: "The first half could have been better. We did more in the second half but it was still not enough. Today we haven't deserved anything. We need to recover quickly now because the next match is tomorrow."

Hero Man of the Match: Agustin Mazzilli (ARG)
