16th ranked Italy’s brilliant start to the FINTRO Hockey World League Semi-Finals continued on Thursday (25 June) when they achieved a second successive draw against supposedly superior opposition, tying 2-2 with 10th ranked Japan.

The Italians added another point to the four earned from a win against France and draw with Korea and remain unbeaten after three matches, currently sitting second in Pool A with one match remaining.

Japan’s Cherry Blossoms lead twice in the match through goals from Akane Shibata and Akiko Kato, but were pegged back on both occasions by goals from Italy’s number 7 Valentina Braconi.

“We are happy with all of the results and we know that the draw today means that we are still capable of fighting for either second or third place in the Pool”, said Italy captain Chiara Tiddi.

Giving her thoughts about their Pool A finale with World, Olympic and World League champions the Netherlands, Tiddi commented: “It will be a big challenge against them. We have to think about playing better than we ever have. I don’t know what the result will be but our other results mean that we can play it with a calm feeling.”
