Match Review POL - CHN 4-2

Poland came out on top in the 9-10 classification match, defeating China 4-2 in the first match of quarter-final day at the FINTRO Hockey World League Semi-Finals in Antwerp.

Bartosz Zywiczka opened the scoring for Poland with a fierce strike five minutes un, before China turned the match on its head thanks to goals from Guo Xiaoping and Du Chen. Mateusz Hulboj restored parity ahead of half time before Poland took the game by the scruff of the neck with two goals in the third quarter from Karol Majchrzak and Tomasz Wachowiak to end the match scoring and seal a 9th place finish for the Europeans.

Although it has difficult competition for China, at 31 in the world they came into this event as easily the lowest ranked team and will massively benefit from the experience of competing against some of the finest sides in world hockey.

“This tournament has very tough for our team because we are very young, but it has been a very good chance to learn from other teams that are much higher ranked than us,” said China Team Manager Yang Liu, reflecting on the competition. “The other teams here are very strong, and we have learned a lot from every match that we have played. It is good for our team and definitely will help our progress.”
