Match 28: Netherlands v Germany 1-2 (0-0)

Germany grabbed the second of three available tickets for the Hockey World League Final 2015 in India as well as the 2016 Rio Olympic Games when getting the better end on the Netherlands in Sunday’s second semi-final. Oskar Deecke’s late strike sealed the 2-1 victory for the Germans.

This match was a close affair with both sides playing fast-paced, high quality hockey.
The Netherlands had the better scoring opportunities in the first two quarters forcing German goalie Nicolas Jacobi to make several saves to keep the score tied at 0-0.

The most promising scoring opportunity for the current Olympic and World Silver medallists arrived in the last minute of the second quarter when Oscar Deecke deflected a shot from Jeroen Hertzberger off the goalline.  

The end of the third quarter was highly entertaining, as Jeroen Hertzberger (44’) put the Dutch ahead but Germany struck back one minute later through Florian Fuchs (45’) tipping in a beautiful pass from Martin Häner.

Germany won the first corner of the match with 9 minutes remaining on the clock but Moritz Fürste’s shot was blocked. However, the Germans managed to turn the score around. Oskar Deecke received a good pass from Moritz Fürste and scored from a wide angle sealing the 2-1 victory as well as the two tickets for India and Rio.

Thoughts on the match

Max Caldas (NED)
“We were by far the better team today. That’s the story of the bad losers, that you try to explain why you lost although you should have won. In the end we had two bad moments in the game and Germany had two good moments in the game, these two collided. They scored two goals and this is their world class. Germany showed today again, that if you give them half a chance they take a whole chance.”

Florian Fuchs (GER)
“Of course we are really happy because this has been a tough tournament so far, especially the quarter-final had its ups and downs. We were struggling in the first half but scored two goals in the second half and today we sealed it by taking the step to the Olympics. This is great for our very young team and it is a great success.
