Match Review GER - AUT 5-0

Germany secured their spot in Thursday’s quarter-final thanks to an impressive 5-0 win over Austria. Germany and Canada are both on six points in pool B, while Austria can gain a maximum of three points in their remaining match against Spain.  

Niklas Wellen (11’) opened the scoring in this German-speaking encounter when he converted after good work from Mats Grambusch on the right.

Earlier, Austria had won a penalty corner in the first minute but German goalkeeper Nicolas Jacobi managed to save Michael Körper’s drag-flick. Afterwards Germany took control of the match maintaining possession in the Austrian half. Oscar Deecke (40’) doubled the lead in the third quarter when he capped off a flowing team move with a precise finish.

Christopher Zeller (50’) increased the score to 3-0 when netting from a penalty corner. The Olympic champions added two more goals thanks to the youngsters Christopher Rühr (55’) and Mats Grambusch (59’).

This match was a special one for Germany’s Tobias Hauke and Tobias Walter and the Austrians Körper, Benjamin Stanzl and Xaver Hasun as they all play club hockey for Harvestehuder THC in Hamburg. “Benni and I are in the same team for six years now. All of them are my friends, so I hope that Austria make the quarter-finals,” said Hauke.  

Thoughts on the match

Christopher Rühr (GER)
“We didn’t really use our chances in the first half. We changed our game structure in the second half which allowed us to create more opportunities.”

Michael Körper (AUT)
“We played much better than in our first two matches. We showed more confidence but saved the goal scoring for our match against Spain. Losing 5-0 today was tough but I think we have improved and now we will give everything to qualify for the quarter-final.”
