Junior Hockey World Cup: Argentina Bag World Cup
Argentina displayed its organised play with great patience to beat six-time titleholder German team 4-2 and victory the trophy after 16 years in the men’s Hockey Junior World Cup at the Kalinga Stadium on Sunday.
And three of the goals from Argentina were knocked up by Lautaro Domene on Sunday as he backed Argentina defeated Germany 4-2 in the final at Kalinga in the men’s Hockey Junior World Cup. Argentina’s additional goal was scored by Franco Agostini in the terminal minutes of the match when Germany, after getting two goals, frantically worked all out in quest of an equalizer and had carried out their goalkeeper and succeeded him with a field player.
The outcome ended Germany’s hunt for a seventh men’s Junior World Cup trophy and drew the curtain down on a grand tournament at the Kalinga Stadium.
Germany started their attack with hard knocks and fast moves from outside the circle after half-time. One such movement decreased the break as Julius Hayner rapped in a free ball. Germany got three back-to-back sharp turns early in the final division and Masi Pfandt’s passing drew equality.
The Argentines persisted cool as Domene achieved his hat-trick and Franco Agostini hit in the final minute to secure the win. Germany ended up second after 42 years.
Beginning of the day, France encouraged by the Player of the Tournament Timothée Clément defeated India to declare the bronze medal while Netherlands and Spain were individual champions over Belgium and Malaysia in the 5-6 and 7-8 group matches. India lost to a better-ready France 3-1 to complete fourth for a second time. It was the 2016 champion’s other loss to France in this edition.
