Match 21: Egypt v Austria 4-3 SO (2-2, 1-2)

Egypt took 9th place at the Argentina Hockey World League Semi-Final in Buenos Aires. The world’s number 20 defeated Austria 4-3 in a shoot-out in the 9-10 classification match on Sunday morning. The winning goal was scored by team-captain Amr Elhady. Having five players injured, Egypt played with a squad of 13 today.

Egypt were quick to get on the scoreboard as Hamada Atef (2’) put his team ahead through a penalty stroke. Austria levelled the score at 1-1 just a few minutes later when Michael Körper (6’) fired in a penalty corner.

Austria took the lead in the last minute of the second quarter when Alexander Bele (30’) slotted home after a solo run. The third quarter remained a tied affair with not many chances either side.

Egypt fought hard to equalise but a well organised Austrian defence restricted their opportunities. However, the Egyptians forced two penalty corners in the fourth quarter. The first attempt was saved but Atef converted the second penalty corner to tie the result at 2-2 with three minutes remaining.

The shoot-out was another close affair but Egypt managed to eventually win it thanks to Elhady who scored from the 10th attempt.

Thoughts on the match:

Amr Elhady (EGY)
“The match was very, very difficult for us. We have five injured players, so the majority of us had to play for 60 minutes. We practice the shootout in every training. We are very happy to reach the 9th place.”

Benjamin Stanzl (AUT)
“The result is very disappointing. The start was not a good one with Egypt scoring early but we managed to fight back into the game. I my opinion we were the better side but then we conceded a late penalty corner goal. The shootout is just luck.”
