Match 25: QF 4 ARG v JPN 2-1 (0-1)

Argentina walked away with a 2-1 over Japan to reach the top four at the Argentina Hockey World League in Semi-Final in Buenos Aires. The Leones will now face Canada in Saturday’s semi-final.

Matias Paredes put his Leones ahead after 7 minutes when he got a touch on Lucas Vila’s fantastic pass. The Leones were in good control of the match but Japan defended hard to keep the score at one until halftime.

In the second half, the Samurais got a few chances through counter-attacks that they could not convert. Despite being the better side for much of the match, Argentina failed to double their lead. Their first penalty corner arrived 8 minutes before the end of the match. Gonzalo Peillat (52’) sneaked the dragflick in under Japanese goalie Suguru Shimmoto to increase the lead to 2-1 marking his fourth goal at this event.

However, the Samurais recovered quickly and pulled one back through Toshiro Tachibana (53’) just one minute later. Japan fought hard to get the equaliser forcing another penalty corner through Hiroki Sakamoto. However, the shot was nicely saved by Argentine goalie Juan Vivaldi to keep the 2-1 lead.

Thoughts on the match

Carlos Retegui
“We are very happy that the classification for the Olympic Games is almost reality. Today was a very difficult match for us. The match reminded me on our qualification match for the 2014 World Cup in Johor, Malaysia.”
