Match Review ARG - CAN 2-1

Match 12: Argentina v Canada 2-1 (1-1)

FIH Rising star of 2014 Gonzalo Peillat struck late to earn Argentina a 2-1 win over Canada in pool B. The Leones, Germany and Canada are all qualified for Thursday’s quarter-final while Spain and Austria fight for the last available spot at the Argentina Hockey World League Semi-Final in Buenos Aires.

The first quarter was goalless despite a number of chances either side. Argentina were first on the scoreboard in the second quarter with a well-taken penalty stroke from Juan Gilardi. The stroke was awarded after a Facundo Callioni was fouled in the circle.

However, Canada managed to level the score to 1-1 before halftime thanks to a great effort by Sukhi Pansar who rounded a defender before slotting the ball home.

The stadium was crowded on Saturday night with the spectators getting excited every time an Argentine player got the ball. Soccer legend Diego Maradona was also watching from the stands.

The game-winning goal arrived in the 45th minute when Peillat’s low flick defeated the outstanding Canadian goalie David Carter.  

Thoughts on the match

David Carter (CAN)
“It was a good game for me, especially after the first saves I felt really comfortable. We did defend as a team which was good. We are happy to be qualified for the quarter-finals. We want to finish in the top three to qualify directly for the Olympics.”

Agustin Mazilli (ARG)
“Today we haven’t played really well. We need to act more as a team. This needs to be better tomorrow when we play Germany.”
