Match Review EGY - KOR 3-7

Egypt missed out on the quarter-finals after a 7-3 loss to Korea on Sunday. The world’s number 20 finish bottom of pool A and will now play off in Thursday’s 9th/10th classification match.

Egypt, who lost their first three matches in Buenos Aires, were fighting hard to avoid another defeat but their effort has not paid off.

Captain Amr Elhady opened the scoring on 8 minutes but the advantage was short-lived. Korea recovered quickly and equalised in the same minute through a penalty corner goal from Nam Hyunwoo. Korea then turned the score around with a beautiful field goal from Jang Jonghyun (13’).

Egypt struck back through Mohamed Essam (26’) before halftime to level the contest at 2-2 at the break. Hamad Atef (34’) put Egypt ahead 3-2 but Korea responded 10 minutes later when Nam (44’) scored from a penalty stroke to level the score to 3-3.

However, the Koreans saved their best performance for the last quarter, adding more goals through Lee Namyong (46’), Lee Jung Jun (50’), Kang Moonkyu (57’) and You Hyosik (58’) - the 7-3 win demonstrating their superiority.

Thoughts on the match

Mostafa Mansour (EGY)
“We have improved throughout this tournament. We are coming from World League 2 and qualified for the Semi-Finals after beating South Africa. Here in Buenos Aires, we are playing the best teams in the world and we can learn a lot from it. We have played our best match against the Netherlands so far. Missing out on the quarter-finals is ok for us, now we want to finish 9th.”

Nam Hyunwoo (KOR)
“The last quarter is always our best, we got warmed up then. But this is something we need to work on. It is our goal to finish second in the pool.”
