Match 10: Japan v Egypt 2-0 (0-0)

Genki Mitani and Koji Kayukawa secured Japan a solid 2-0 win over Egypt at the Argentina Hockey World League Semi-Final in Buenos Aires. The Samurais are now in a good position to reach the quarter-finals. Egypt suffered their third defeat and now, they need to win their last pool match against Korea to keep their chances open for a spot in the knockout matches.

Both teams were still waiting for their first points after losing their first two pool matches in this tournament.  Japan and Egypt met in a tough contest knowing that the winners are likely to qualify for the quarter-finals.

Japan were the better side throughout the first half, creating enough chances to be leading at halftime. Despite having more scoring opportunities, the Samurais were not able to capitalize.

Japan, the world’s number 16, fought hard to take the lead and eventually scored thanks to Genki Mitani (6’). Kenta Tanaka ran the ball into the circle pushing it to Mitani who slotted home from close range. The second goal arrived when Koji Kayukawa (47’) scored with a well-worked penalty corner routine.  

Thoughts on the match

Kenta Tanaka (JPN)
“We are happy with today’s performance because we knew that we would have to win this match. Today was our best match in this tournament so far but we should have scored more goals. This is something we need to work on.”
