Day 11 – Germany and Netherlands reach the final

The final of the Standard Chartered FIH Men’s Junior World Cup will be a clash between two neighbour countries. Germany who have not been in the final since 1993 play the Netherlands who reached it only in 1985. Germany get the chance to turn World Champion the fifth time in their Junior World Cup history while the Netherlands are still waiting for their first title.
The match takes place on coming Sunday at 7.30pm in Johore Bahru.

In today’s game the Germans defeated Australia 3:2 (2:2, 2:1) with a Golden Goal scored in the 5th minute of the extra-time. Germany and Australia competed on the same level; the score could have gone in both directions. Finally Germany were the luckier team today who scored the Golden Goal.

The other semi-final between the Netherlands and New Zealand was not that close. Although the Black Sticks were 1:0 in front until the 39th minute the Netherlands are worthy of the victory. Especially in the end of the second half they put more effort in the game and won 4:1 (0:1). The Bronze Medal Match will also be a meeting of two neighbour countries because New Zealand clash Australia.

Six other teams entered the pitch the last time on Day 11. Pakistan defeated world champion Argentina with a clear 5:1 in the battle for rank 5.
Korea saved rank 7 due to a last-minute goal versus Spain. Spain were nearly the whole time in lead but Korea made two goals in the last three minutes and turned the score from 3:2 for Spain to 3:4 for Korea.
The 15th place finally goes to South Africa who defeated England in a penalty stroke competition after 85 minutes of hockey.
