Match 30: Korea v Japan 1-0 (1-0)

Korea narrowly defeated Japan 1-0 to take seventh place at the Argentina Hockey World League Semi-Final in Buenos Aires. The game-winning goal was scored by You Hyosik in the second quarter.

The match was goalless after the first quarter but Korea took the lead five minutes into the second quarter with a goal from You Hyosik (20’). The world’s number eight dominated play throughout the second quarter, but went into halftime with just a narrow 1-0 lead.

Japan fought hard to level the score in the third quarter but the solid Korean defence led by Lee Seunghoon kept every attempt at bay. The Samurais tried everything to get on the scoreboard, replacing their goalkeeper Katsuya Takase with another field player.

Kenta Tanaka could have scored with 20 seconds left on the clock but his shot hit the outside of the post. So You’s goal remained the only one in this game sealing the Korean victory.

Thoughts on the match

You Hyosik (KOR)
“We can be satisfied with today’s match but not with the whole tournament. We came here to finish within in the top three but we failed. However, I think this tournament was a very good experience for our team. We need to keep on working now and look forward to play in the 2016 Champions Trophy.”

Ippei Fujimoto (JPN)
“This event was a very good experience for Japan Hockey but the result is not satisfying for us. We now need to focus on the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. We will work hard for it. I’m 25 years old now, so it’s my personal goal to participate in 2020.”
