Ireland kept their Olympic dreams very much alive with a 4-1 victory over Malaysia. The Green Machine got off to the best of starts with two quick goals from Kyle Good and then Peter Caruth, and despite a Malaysia fightback, the Ireland team remains on course to be the first team, in any sport, from Ireland to qualify for the Olympics since 1948.

Good's goal was created by Caruth, who cracked the ball into the circle for Good to deflect past Roslan Jamaluddin in the Malaysia goal. Caruth then scored a goal of his own – a scorcher from the top of the 'D'.

In the second quarter, Malaysia came back with renewed vigour and Jonathan Bell made a great save after Davey Harte was beaten in the Irish goal. Harte was called into action time and again in the second quarter.

First he raced out to the top of the circle to meet Muhammad Shamsul and make a brave diving clearance, then he made a double save to Tengku Ahmad, showing tremendous athleticism for a tall man. It wasn't just Harte who was turning in a great performance. His opposite number Jamaluddin pulled of a good save when Caruth found himself one-on-one with the Malaysian 'keeper.

The second half saw Chris Cargo come tantalisingly close to adding to the Ireland scoreline with a full-length dive onto a crisp pass. Jamaluddin breathed a sigh of relief as the ball whizzed past post and player.

Ireland's third, and the goal that gave Ireland a comfortable cushion, was scored by Alan Sothern. He picked out a flying ball from Michael Darling and directed it past the oncoming 'keeper.

Ireland survived five penalty corners in the last 10 minutes, but on the sixth attempt, Faiz Jali found the net with a deflection past Harte. With just 40 seconds left on the clock, Ireland made it four, with a breakaway goal from Michael Darling.

"We will be watching all the other results in the Continental Championships to see if we are going to Rio," said Harte, speaking after the game.
