Match 20: Spain v Argentina 0-1 (0-0)

The “Leones” maintained their perfect record at the Argentina Hockey Champions Trophy in Buenos Aires with a narrow 1-0 win over Spain. The game winning goal was scored by Facundo Callioni with three minutes remaining.

Argentina finished top of pool B and will now play a quarter-final against Japan. Spain became fourth in the pool and will play off against the Netherlands.

The first half saw strong play from both sides but not many scoring opportunities. Spain knew that they have to win this encounter to avoid finishing fourth in pool B. The Red Sticks fought hard to get on the scoreboard but they were unable to break through the Argentine defence.

FIH rising star Gonzalo Peillat was close to scoring in the third quarter but his attempt was saved on the line. The winner was scored by Callioni on 58 minutes when he went on a solo-run beating all in his path to give Argentina the lead much to the delight of the crowd in the sold out stadium at CeNARD.

Thoughts on the match
Bosco Perez-Pla (ESP)
“We played and defended very well but it is what it is. We did everything to win this game. We went into one-on-one in the last five minutes and tried to force something. It was unlucky that Argentina scored but in the end a draw wouldn’t have been enough for us either.”

Facundo Callioni (ARG)
“This was a very difficult match because Spain had to win it to avoid playing Holland in the quarter-final. We had to wait to take the initiative and our plan worked out.”
