Match Review GBR - BEL 2-2

The fans turned out in their thousands to watch Belgium’s Red Lions open their FINTRO Hockey World League Semi-Finals account with a 2-2 draw against Pool B rivals Great Britain.

A brilliantly angled deflection from team captain John-John Dohmen in the second quarter put Belgium ahead and triggered a huge roar of approval from the home supporters, although they were to be subdued ahead of the half-time hooter.

The leveller came from Great Britain captain Barry Middleton, who was on had to finish off a second phase penalty corner from close range.

Things got even better for GB, who moved ahead shortly after half time thanks to a wonderful strike from Alastair Brogdon, who burst into the circle from the left before slipping the ball underneath onrushing Belgian goalkeeper Vincent Vanasch to make the score 2-1 and silence the home fans.

Belgium’s deserved equaliser arrived 12 minutes from the end, with Sebastien Dockier pouncing on a penalty corner rebound to slip the ball between the legs of Great Britain goalkeeper George Pinner.

“They are a good side, but I think we’ll feel a frustrated that we didn’t play better but wasn’t a bad start”, said Great Britain’s Dan Fox after the match. “Playing the hosts in the first match is the best way to start, really, as it gets you right into the tournament and it is great playing here in Belgium.”

The match was a milestone for Belgium’s Felix Denayer, who was playing his 200th senior international.
