Korea grabbed a 1-0 win against Japan’s Cherry Blossoms as both teams played their final match in Pool A at the FINTRO Hockey World League Semi-Finals.

The result moved Korea onto seven points from their four matches, putting them second in the standings, with Italy needing to defeat Pool A table-toppers the Netherlands (1400 CEST) to retake second place from the Koreans. A second place finish would set up a cross-over quarter-final meeting with the third placed team in Pool B, a position currently occupied by Belgium’s Red Panthers.

The only goal of an incredibly close encounter between these two great rivals of Asian hockey arrived in the second quarter of the match, with team captain Kim Jongeun netting with a brilliant penalty corner drag-flick that sailed into the top right corner of Sakiyo Asano’s goal. However, Japan certainly had their chances and would surely have got on the score-sheet were it not for some impressive reflex saves from Korea shot-stopper Jang Soo Ji.

“I’m very happy with the performance of my team as matches against Japan are very close as they are a strong team,” said Korea Head Coach Han Jin Soo after the match.

Regarding a possible meeting with Belgium in the quarter-finals, Han was cautious. “I would not say that I am confident, because Belgium are good technically and they are the home team so will have a lot of spectators cheering, so if we do face them then we know it will be difficult.”
