    Default Australia beat France 2-0; leads the points tally with 9points



    New Delhi, 9 December 2013: Both teams were already through to the quarter-finals after winning their initial two matches and were playing for top of the pool and a better draw later in the competition. The mood was light and action was flowing back and forth pleasantly in the initial minutes of play. Teams traded early penalty-corners but with no real danger for the keepers.
    William Gilmour had a chance for Australia alone in front of Edgar Reynaud in the French goal but blasted his shot wide. Simon Martin Brisac created a good chance with a quick free-hit and a 40m run through the Australian defense but his last pass in front of the empty net was misunderstood by his teammate. Despite missing key midfielder Hugo Genestet, France were holding their ground handsomely in front of the Oceania Champions.
    Goal-keeper Edgar Reynaud was again in fine form and thwarted some hot Australian attempts. The Kookaburras put some of their best chances high and wide and the two teams were still on par 0-0 going into the break.
    Australia did not waste time in second period and jumped into the lead by Frank Main in the 37th minute. France had a good reaction but could not penetrate the dense Australian defense. Play was entertaining, very intense and physical at times. Australia took advantage of a numerical advantage to force a corner and Cameron Joyce capitalized with a straight forward low shot, giving his team a small 2-goal cushion.
    With time passing and little chance of altering the final result, both teams gave field time to their alternate goal-keepers and Australia walked off with the win and top of Pool B, while France were satisfied with their performance against a higher ranked team and their qualification for the quarter-final for the first time since 1985.
    Speaking on the win Australia Coach Paul Gaudoin said,” I believe the good performance of team is primarily depends upon the skill execution. We have young squad of players and they are focusing on following a simple strategy of gaining and passing the ball quickly. Our team has done lot of improvements in past few days which can be seen in their game. All the teams playing in the league are good and cannot be taken lightly.”

    Default Argentina beat Spain 1-0 in their third match; Both teams could not book a place



    New Delhi, 9 December 2013: Both teams needed to redeem themselves after a disappointing starts in this competition. Pace was cautious for the first ten minutes of play, before the Argentineans started to progressively take control of the proceedings. Actions in the circle were however scarce and both keepers saw little action worth fretting about.Only real chance in the period was for Argentina in the 30th minute on a couple of penalty-corners, but ace-striker Gonzalo Peillat was off target on both and half-time was reached on a scoreless tie reflecting well the period.Peillat had another penalty-corner chance early in the period, but his drag flick went way high in the stands. It is only in the 46th minute that Argentina finally went on the scoreboard when Manuel Nicolas Sacchetti intercepted in the circle a clearance from the defense and blasted it back in goal.Play suddenly became more animated and Spain was all over the Argentinean circle for a while. They had their first penalty-corner in the 56th minute but their double-fake did not fool the Argentinean defense. Things started to heat off in the final ten minutes and a few yellow cards were handed out to cool the tempters.Argentina survived another penalty-corner scare and, despite been short two players for a while, managed to keep their meagre on-goal lead to the end, salvaging some pride with the 3 points of the win. They finish 3rd in Pool B and are out of the quarter-finals for the first time in nine Junior World Cup appearances.Speaking on their win today, Coach Carlos Geneyro, Argentina said “the boys played good hockey today as compared to their last 2 matches. Today’s match was very competitive and the opponents were good on their defense. Our next match will either be with Korea or India and we will accordingly work on our team strategy which will be as per the opponent that we will be playing against on that day”.

    Default New Zealand and England gain one point each after a close draw on the third day



    New Delhi, 8 December 2013: Fierce battle between New Zealand and England closed in a draw. Both teams wanted to redeem themselves after losing their opening matches and play was immediately animated. England drew first blood in the 14th minute by James Gall, cleverly pulling away from traffic in the circle to find space and blast a shot on goal.
    They nearly doubled their tally when Nicholas Bandurak arrived alone in the circle after stealing a ball in midfield but he was thwarted by Richard Joyce in the Black Sticks goal. England however did not miss their chance on the resulting penalty-corner and Luke Taylor increased their lead to 2-0 with a high drag-flick.
    New Zealand came back firing on all cylinders after the break and immediately forced a couple of penalty-corners. They bobbled the first one but Kane Russell’s low flick hit the target on the second one, bringing back the Kiwis within reach of England in the 39th minute. They kept the momentum and created time and again mayhem in the English defense but could not capitalize on the next penalty-corner.
    England had trouble keeping their head above water in this period. They managed to maintain their structure but were at times individually outplayed by the skilled New-Zealanders. English goal-keeper Harry Gibson kept his team alive with a fantastic save on a penalty-corner, but he could not do anything on a shot from close range by Matt Rees-Gibbs to tie the game in the 68th minute!
    Neither team was satisfied with a tie that makes a quarter-final berth problematic, but the English players were the most disappointed after having blown away a 2-goal half-time lead.

    Default Malaysia beats South Africa 2-1 of Hero Hockey Junior World Cup 2013



    New Delhi, 8 December 2013: Both teams had narrow wins on opening day and started the match cautiously, not wanting to risk falling behind early. Things started to heat up after ten minutes. South Africa bobbled their first penalty-corner but Matthew Brown made no mistake on the second one, slotting the ball high out of reach of Hafizuddin Othman in the Malaysian goal.
    The Asian Champions reacted immediately and besieged the South African circle, calling keeper Rene De La Peyre into action left and right. He stood his ground well but was fooled by a deflection from his own defender on a free hit drilled into the circle in the 27th minute. Malaysia had multiple chances to take the lead in the final minutes of the period but South Africa were kept afloat by De La Peyre, in fine form tonight, and the break was reached on a tied score.
    After another period of domination, Malaysia logically took the lead in the 43th minute by Firhan Ashari, turning around at the top of the circle and blasting the ball in the backboard.
    Play was fast and entertaining and it was soon the turn of South Africa to be threatening, earning a penalty-corner after Ignatius Malgraff cut through the whole Malaysian defense. The corner was upgraded to a penalty-stroke but Matthew Brown’s attempt was well guessed by the keeper, maintaining the narrow Malaysian lead.
    South Africa pushed desperately for the elusive equalizer but Malaysia did not break down, protecting the 3 points for the win until the end to stand alone at the top of the standings in Pool D.

    Default France with their second win, secure a berth in the quarter finals; Beats Argentina 3



    New Delhi, 8 December 2013: France controlled possession in the opening sequences of play but Argentina pressed them very high, preventing any territorial advance. Argentina were prompt to jump on any loose ball to surge forward and Edgar Reynaud in the French goal was called into urgent action a few times in the first ten minutes.Play was fast and furious, going at breakneck speed from one end to the next. France had a chance on penalty-corner but scrambled it and Argentina scored on a swift counter-attack that found Estanislao Perez Pesado unmarked in the circle with the easy task of blasting the ball in goal.France came back in the 25th minute by Pieter Van Straaten, with a spectacular dive at the far post to deflect a high ball lifted by the foot of a defender. They used their momentum to force a second penalty-corner. They scrambled again their trap but recovered promptly to fool the Argentinean defense and take the lead by Theophile Ponthieu.Umpires had to show a couple of yellow cards to cool the tempers and Argentina came back on the buzzer with a penalty-stroke by Gonzalo Peillat, sending the two teams back to back into the break.The same Peillat had a chance on penalty-corner in the opening minute of second period but his low drag-flick was calmly saved by Reynaud. Pace of play remained very high, offering an entertaining display of attacking hockey, much to the pleasure of the large group of French fans. Les Bleus (ironically playing all in white today) took the lead in the 48th minute by Jean-Laurent Kieffer, turning around his defender and slotting a sweet reverse-stick lob over the diving goal-keeper.This seemed to take some wind out of the South American sails and a period of French domination ensued. They could not capitalize and Argentina progressively came back into the game, setting the stage for a torrid end of match. Argentina replaced their keeper with a field player with three minutes to go, pushing France on their heels. But, buoyed by their vocal fans, the French managed to cling to their narrow lead, earning their second win of the competition and quarter-final berth.

    Default France beat Malaysia to enter maiden Jr hockey WC final

    France made history on Friday when they beat Malaysia via the penalty shoot-out in the first semi-final to make their maiden appearance in the final of the Junior Men's Hockey World Cup, at the Major Dhyan Chand Stadium, in Delhi. The tournament’s underdogs, who never went past the pool stages since the tournament’s inception in 1979, showed tremendous fighting spirit as they rallied from a goal down to win 3-1 in the shoot-out, after the teams were locked 1-1 at the end of regulation time.
    France’s best performance in the tournament hitherto was a seventh-place finish at home in the inaugural edition in 1979.
    The Malaysians started off in grand style, scoring as early as the fourth minute through an unmarked Azri Hassan, who had plenty of time to beat Edgar Reynaud in the France goal.
    After both sides missed a couple of chances, France, who had stunned European champions Belgium in the quarter-finals, were rewarded for their persistence in the 63rd minute when Jean-Laurent Kieffer deflected the ball into the Malaysian goal to sent their fans into raptures.
    In the shoot-out, France scored twice from one-on-one position while the Malaysian could find the back of the net just once.
    France will now face the winner of the second semi-final between defending champions Germany and the Netherlands in Sunday’s final.
    In the classification matches for 5th to 8th places, Belgium beat Korea 6-1 while Australia got the better of New Zealand 2-1.

    Default Germany lifts the Hero Hockey Junior World Cup Men 2013 Beats France 5-2



    France is the good story of this 2013 Hero Hockey Junior World Cup. They arrived discreetly in the competition but managed to win over the American Champions (Argentina), European Champions (Belgium) and Asian Champions (Malaysia) to progress to their first ever final in a top international event. They had however their work cut out against Germany, defending Junior World Cup champions and five time winners of the junior flagship event.
    France were supported by a large colony of singing fans, but Germany killed the suspense early when Niklas Wellen stole the ball in the French circle and slotted it past a surprised Edgar Reynaud in the second minute of play.The French promptly settled their nerves and organized their game. They were working hard, keeping the Germans at bay and not hesitating to rush forward when they saw an opening. In the 16th minute, a quick exchange of passes found Gaspard Baumgarten alone at the top of the circle and he did not think twice to blast a shot past Victor Aly in the German goal, much to the vocal pleasure of the bleu-blanc-rouge crowd.France suddenly became bolder, pushing temporarily the German defense on the back foot. A cross from Hugo Genestet eluded two German defenders but a rushing attacker could not put his stick on it for the deflection.Germany forced their first penalty-corner of the match during a French yellow card but could not capitalize. They progressively regained the upper hand and France were under pressure at the end of the period, but half-time was reached with the two teams back to back with one goal each.Germany came back with more purpose in their stride and play but, incredibly, France scored and took the lead on their first penalty-corner of the match in the 40th minute by Gaspard Baumgarten, his second goal of the game. This did not stand well with the Germans who forced a penalty-corner of their own in the next breath, but were denied by Edgar Reynaud, again in fine form in the French goal.Germany came back on par in the 44th minute by Niklas Wellen, also his second of the match. He completed his hat-trick two minutes later to put Germany back on top. France however refused to capitulate and fought on every ball, holding the fort firmly until the 60 minute when Jonas Gomoll made the best of a confusing situation in the French circle to blast the ball past Reynaud.Two goals down and a handful of minutes to go, France replaced their goal-keeper so that Corentin Saunier could have the experience of a World Cup final and the Germans scored another goal by top-scorer of the competition Christopher Rühr. Germany were were soon hoisting the Junior World Cup, for the sixth time in the history of the event, after an exciting Final that was much closer that everybody was anticipating. France was certainly happy with their performance in this competition, enjoying their silver medals with their fans.


    Individual Awards:Player of the Tournament: Christopher Rühr (Germany)
    Goal-keeper of the Tournament: Edgar Reynaud (France)
    Top Scorer: Christopher Rühr (Germany), 9 goals
    Goal of the Tournament: Jean-Laurent Kieffer (France), Argentina vs. France, 3rd French goal (48th minute)


    Speaking on being the Champions yet again Germany Coach Andre Henning said “proud of this team and the feeling has no words. In the first half France was going very strong over, but the team was very mentally very strong and they came back in the second half giving no option to the opponents to make a comeback. This team was the youngest team in this tournament but in no ways did they look or played like a young team and this is good news for German hockey. Thanks to the spectators here who supported us all throughout the tournament and we go back with happy moment”.


    Speaking on the loss France Coach Gael Foulard said “Proud of this team as the players have showcased exceptional game of hockey all throughout the tournament. The boys could not deliver today and this was because of some silly mistakes in the second round. While we couldn’t win the title we are still happy to be the runners-up for the tournament”

    Default Netherlands wins the bronze, beats Malaysia at Hero Hockey Junior World Cup 2013 Beat



    Asian Champions Malaysia breezed through pool play and quarter-final unbeaten but could not handle the French team in semi-final, losing in an agonizing shootout. The Netherlands were equally dominant until the semi-finals, when they lost to Germany after challenging them until the end with a spectacular three-goal scoring spree.
    In this bronze medal game, the Netherlands drew first blood in the 3rd minute when their captain Roel Bovendeert progressed along the back line, attempted a high shot and batted in goal the rebound from the goal-keeper. The Dutch did not waste any time and added a second goal three minutes later by Thierry Brinkman. Malaysia responded with a penalty-corner and, with three goals in four minutes, the match was launched on a high note!The Netherlands had another defensive scare but progressively took control of midfield, making the Malaysians run after their long and patient passes. They had a penalty-corner in the 18th minute, which was not scored directly but Tom Hiebendaal managed to find the ball in the mad goalmouth scramble that ensued and push it in goal. Malaysia were dangerous on a couple of penalty-corners but Jan De Wijkerslooth stood tall in the Orange goal to thwart the attempts.
    The Netherlands increased their lead in the 23rd minute by Milan Van Baal with a sweet deflection behind his back, his sixth goal of the competition. Thierry Brinkman soon scored his second of the match and, down 1-5 going into the break, the road ahead seemed rather steep for the young Malaysian team.The Dutch had the match well in hands at the start of second period and Tom Hiebendaal scored his second goal of the match, carbon copy of Van Baal’s deflection behind the back. Malaysia looked somewhat dispirited, unable to entangle themselves from the Dutch press. They did not help their cause when Zulhairi Hashim picked up a yellow card for a reckless diving tackle that took Roel Bovendeert out of the game for a while. The Netherlands took advantage of the numerical advantage to score their seventh goal by Jelle Galema, with still 18 minutes to go in the game.Malaysia pulled back one goal on penalty-corner, but the Netherlands cruised to a clean victory for the bronze medal, leaving the Malaysians in the worst spot at the foot of the podium.


    Speaking on the win Netherlands coach, Sjoerd Marijne said “the team always aims for the top slot and the highest medal. When we came into this match the top most in our minds was to erase our last match against the Germans. We trained and worked on the weak areas for this match and also analysed the footage of our matches that the team played during the tournament, which helped improve the game. The most positive aspect of this team is that the boys are real fighters and do not like losing and if they do loose they know that they have to work on those areas immediately.”


    Speaking on the loss Malaysia Coach, Raj Dhaarma Muhammad said “it was like playing the semi-finals today and it always feels good to play against a strong and competent team. The team today did not deliver as per expectations and seemed to lose focus and made errors which allowed the opponents to have a convincing win over us”.
