Over the entire first half, Germany had the highest share of the game. In the 13th minute, however, the Hanamas conceded an unfortunate Zach Wallace goal, as Stuart Rushmere was previously not significantly bothered by four men. Towards the end of the second quarter, Germany launched a final offensive including two penalty corners, but Oliver Payne was there twice.
End of 2nd trimester
This is roughly the distance of five meters to the line. But the challenge is rejected!
It looks like the first half is history. But England takes back the video evidence! What did the British see there?
Next corner for the Hanamas, this time it’s Gonzalo Peillat who finishes! But Oliver Payne is back.
The corner came to nothing, England suspected the variant. However, Germany stay in attack and Tobias Wellen turns around to finish! The bullet from Oliver Payne’s schooner appears to have hit Nicholas Park’s arm. The scene is checked.
The first penalty corner of the match! Teo Hinrichs is hindered on his way to the Circle by Ian Sloan. Not a hard foul, but enough for the penalty corner.
Once again the English appear out of nowhere in front of the German box! Again, it’s Zachary Wallace picking up the pace and shooting hard. On the left corner, however, your own teammate is in the way, the ball would have just passed.
The Hanamas have recovered and are now exerting much stronger pressure! Christopher Rühr came out on the right corner, but the referees saw something.
Germany remains in possession. Top scorer Niklas Wellen now has one of his few ball contacts.
The Hanamas are finally going around in circles again! Marco Miltkau passes the baton to Thies Prinz, who hits the ball badly.
England remains in forward motion. Zach Wallace, who plays for HGC in the Dutch league, is a constant asset.
Zachary Wallace quickly executes a free kick. However, Tom Grambusch can intercept the sharp cross from the left.
The second quarter is on, Germany must now get into the game better.
Start of 2nd trimester
Conclusion of the quarter:
Germany actually got off to a controlled, controlled start to the encounter, appearing in the round more often in the opening ten minutes. Stuart Rushmere and Zachary Wallace somehow got by until the opener with England’s first notable attack.
End of 1st trimester
England now seems to have tasted blood. In their latest attack, however, the clock is ticking for the Three Lions.
Now, of course, it will be very difficult against the English who haven’t conceded a single goal in the tournament so far.
Goal for England, 1-0 by Zachary Wallace
With the convincing first push, England take the lead. Stuart Rushmere picks up the ball and somehow passes it past four men in a circle. Zachary Wallace basically just has to keep the bat and hits flat to the right corner. Alexander Stadler is powerless at this distance.
So far, the Hanamas have had 51% possession of the ball. It looks like there are more.
Lack of concentration with Tom Grambusch, the German envy phase is over for now.
Marco Miltkau wins in the left half of the circle in a duel with Liam Sanford and forces Oliver Payne to make the first save! But the angle is too acute.
First degree dangerous for the Honamas! Moritz Trompertz is played in the center of the circle and completes the round. The artistic finish barely misses the corner of the left angle.
It’s still a somewhat restrained start to the match for both teams. There’s a lot going on in midfield.
Third useless bad pass from the English, yet known for their good start to the match.
So far, not much has worked together for the Brits. For the second time, they play the ball in a standing position.
First attempt via captain Mats Grambusch, but Moritz Trompertz is immediately delivered to the quarter.
It starts! Germany in white, England in red.
start of the game
As usual in hockey tournaments, punctuality is not particularly important. But at least the anthems are already playing.
The potential semi-final opponents have already been decided: Australia would wait in the last four after beating Spain 4-3 yesterday. Incidentally, the venue for the entire knockout round is the 16,000 seater Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneswar.
For readers who can only follow field hockey at major tournaments: unlike the Olympic Games, England, Scotland and Wales compete separately in the World and European Championships and not as Great Britain joint team. England finished fourth at the 2010, 2014 and 2018 World Cups.
England have been one of the surprises of this World Cup so far, also holding a goalless draw against hosts India, and are the only team apart from the Netherlands not to have not conceded a goal. Thanks to the better goal difference against India, the Three Lions have reached the quarter-finals directly, which means they have had no games this weekend.
Of course, the Belgians were already an eye-level rival in the group stage – but the leaders of the European table could afford the draw against the Western Europeans, even if the detour through the crossover round had to be taken in the end. . There they beat the weak Frenchman 5:1.
Hello and welcome to the quarter-finals of the German national hockey team at the World Cup in India! With England, the first real test of endurance awaits the Honamas today. It starts at 12 noon!
