Match Review NZL - NED 1-1

Posted June 7, 2015

Match 14: New Zealand v Netherlands 1-1 (0-1)

Nick Haig’s last-minute strike secured New Zealand a thrilling 1-1 against the Netherlands. As the match finished tied, both teams remain unbeaten at the Argentina Hockey Champions Trophy in Buenos Aires with the Dutchmen leading the pool because of the better goal difference.

The last time both teams met was in the pool stage of the Rabobank Hockey World Cup in 2014 when the match also finished tied at 1-1.  

The first half of action in Buenos Aires didn’t see many scoring opportunities for either side. However, the current Olympic and World Cup Silver medallists were first on the scoreboard when Jeroen Hertberger (21’) netted following a beautiful pass from Robbert Kemperman.

New Zealand worked hard to come back and the effort paid off when they won their first penalty corner with two minutes remaining. Nick Haig (60’) took responsibility and scored. The Black Sticks were close to adding another goal but a second penalty corner taken by Nick Hayward went wide.  

Thoughts on the match

Nick Haig (NZL)
“The first half was a bit disappointing because we missed some opportunities up front. We built pressure in the second half and finally scored this goal. The last penalty corner was very well saved by the Dutch. It’s unfortunate that we didn’t score more than one goal but in the end we are happy with the draw.”

Jereon Hertzberger (NED)
“At least this was a draw. To be honest, we wouldn’t have deserved a win at all. We didn’t play well, New Zealand’s goal was a matter of time. We need to find a way to improve because this is not the way we will qualify here. It is a bit disappointing but nothing is lost. It’s better to have this game now than in the quarter-finals.”
