Match Review NED - JPN 3-1

Match 18: Netherlands v Japan 3-1 (1-1)

The Netherlands finished the pool stage unbeaten following a 3-1 win over Japan. A Billy Bakker double-strike and a Mink van der Weerden penalty corner goal were enough to grab their third win in pool A.
Having three points after four matches, Japan finished fourth in pool A. The Dutch will either finish first or second, depending on the result of the match between Korea and New Zealand later today.

The Olympic and World Cup Silver medallists only needed 51 seconds to get on the scoreboard as Bakker scored on the first shot of the game. Japan, however, recovered quickly, equalising five minutes later when Toshiro Tachibana hit the back of the goal from a penalty corner variation.

The Samurais kept the match open for a long time but conceded a goal when Bakker netted the rebound from the keeper after he had saved Robbert Kemperman’s attempt. The third goal arrived on 49 minutes with Mink van der Weerden’s penalty corner flick hitting the net with 122 km/h.     

Thoughts on the match

Billy Bakker (NED)
“I’m satisfied with today’s result. After the draw against New Zealand we discussed a few things and the progress was visible today. Structure was the key to win this match today.”

Tomonori Ono (JPN)
“We can be satisfied with the way we played. I think it was a good performance from us although we lost in the end.”
