Amaury Keusters thrilled the home fans with a brilliant hat-trick as Belgium’s Red Lions claimed a big win over 31st ranked China, with Dorian Thierry, Simon Gougnard and Tom Boon also getting on the score-sheet. The result puts fourth ranked Belgium at the top of Pool B overnight, with four points from their opening two matches.

China gave a superb account of themselves in the early stages, limiting the lethal Lions to only a handful of chances before a diving Dorian Thiery found the net moments before the end of the first quarter.

Amaury Keusters was the star of the second quarter, taking the score to 3-0 with a double strike that included a blistering backhand effort into the top left corner that must surely be considered as an early candidate for goal of the tournament.

A goalless third quarter was followed by three Belgian strikes in the fourth, with Simon Gougnard, Keusters and Tom Boon completing the scoring.

Speaking after the match, Red Lions striker Tom Boon said: “We came good in the end and we had some good periods, but we cannot forget that we also had some bad spells too. We want to win every game so now we will look forward to our next match against Malaysia. All of the teams from Asia are getting better and we cannot underestimate any of them. We need to fight as hard as we can, and if we do that we will have a good chance to win.”

China’s Stand-In Manager Huo Kelin said: “We are getting better every match and this team is very young, so we are looking forward to the games to come. Being here is very good, it is like a party for the hockey world and we are enjoying it very much.”
