England 0 – 1 Austria
(Half Time 0 – 0)
We won Silver
This game was decided in details. A goal conceded from a direct free hit (our 10th fault) with only 14 seconds to go. During the game we missed a penalty and direct free hit.
England played consistently, man to man alternating restricted with half way line, always pressuring the man with the ball.
Austria were a very solid team with good dynamics in both attack and defence and all their players compete in the German Premier League.
We created a lot of more goal scoring opportunities than Austria but we couldn’t score.
I am very proud of the players who were a team not only on the rink but off as well.
The teams promoted to Group A are Austria, England and Holland.
