Match 16: Argentina v Germany 4-3 (2-2)

Argentina maintained their unbeaten streak on home soil at the Argentina Hockey World League Semi-Final in Buenos Aires. The Leones defeated the Olympic champions Germany in an entertaining match with 4-3 thanks to a late goal from FIH rising star 2014 Gonzalo Peillat. Argentina are now back on top of pool B.

The Leones were on fire in the first quarter scoring on 8 and 13 minutes. Pedro Ibarra put Argentina ahead with a penalty corner goal before Juan Gilardi doubled the lead with a penalty stroke goal.

The stroke was awarded after the ball had hit Moritz Fürste at the facemask when he was defending a penalty corner. Luckily, the German star recovered quickly and was able to return to the field a few minutes later.

The Olympic champions leveled the score to 2-2 before halftime thanks to goals from Florian Fuchs (21’) and Christopher Zeller (24’). Zeller received a superb flick from Martin Häner and started a solo run to score a beautiful equaliser.

Play got hectic towards the end with both sides looking for the winner in the sold-out CeNARD stadium. Peillat put his Leones ahead 3-2 when he converted a penalty corner on 53 minutes. However, it took Germany just one minute to strike back through a penalty corner goal from Tobias Hauke (54’).

The game-winning goal arrived with two minutes remaining. Argentina won another penalty corner which was fired home by Peillat to secure the 4-3 win.

Thoughts on the match

Manuel Vivaldi (ARG)
“We pressed really hard today and scored which is good. Germany are one of the best teams in the world. We need to keep our feet one the ground although we have beaten them today.”

Moritz Fürste (GER)
“I’m well, the mask protected me. The loss today is a good wake-up call, we are unhappy with the way we played. We learnt a lot for our match against Canada."
