Match 15: Austria v Spain 1-4 (1-3)

Spain have qualified for the quarter-finals of the Argentina Hockey World League in Buenos Aires after beating Austria 4-1 in a key encounter. The world’s number 22 finished bottom of pool B having lost all four matches. Austria will now play off in Thursday’s 9th/10th classification match against Egypt.

This game was a key encounter towards the quarter-final qualification as both teams were still waiting for their first points in this competition. The match started with high intensity and both teams enjoying possession. Spain won an early penalty corner which was superbly converted by Pau Quemada (6’) after the ball was deflected from the post.  

Andres Mir (17’) doubled the lead at the beginning of the second quarter before the Austrians pulled one back through a penalty corner goal from Dominic Uher (26’). This was the first goal in this competition for the world’s number 22.

Xavi Lleonart (29’) added another penalty corner goal just before halftime to secure a convincing 3-1 lead at the break.

In the third quarter Quemada (43’) increased the Red Stick's lead to 4-1. Austria fought hard in the last quarter but could not bridge the gap.

Thoughts on the match

Dominic Uher (AUT)
“It was not our plan to lose all match. The match against Spain was a final for us. It wasn’t good that Spain scored early. We managed back to get in the game but as soon as we scored Spain struck back. We won’t give up and of course we want to beat Egypt in the 9th place playoff.”

Xavi Lleonart (ESP)
“Well, this win was very important because it brought us into the quarter-finals. In two days we play Argentina and it is our goal to put ourselves in the best position possible in pool B.”
