Late goals by Welten and Agliotti make Netherlands win
Pool A – Netherlands 3-1 China


After a goalless first half the Dutch defeat China thanks to two late goals scored by Lidewij Welten and Marilyn Agliotti. It was their 7th victory over China in their 12th CT encounter.

It took the Olympic Champions from the Netherlands just over three minutes to win their first penalty corner. Dutch specialist Maartje Paumen took responsibility but her attempt was saved by the Chinese goalkeeper Zhang Lei. Just three minutes later China penetrated dangerously in the Dutch circle winning their first penalty corner which they missed.

Both teams failed to create serious opportunities from open play in the first half. The Olympic Champions had more ball possession during the first 35 minutes but couldn't put themselves on the scoreboard. They failed to score from six penalty corners in total. Paumen was denied four times, Eva de Goede and Kim Lammers once. The counter-attacking Chinese managed to break through the Dutch defense a couple of times but couldn’t test the Dutch goalkeeper Joyce Sombroek to her limit. Last CT encounter between these teams with no goals in the 1st half was in 2009, when the Dutch won 1-0 goal through a PC goal by Marilyn Agliotti.

The second half started off with a great attack by the Dutch. Lidewij Welten (37’) won possession near the circle line and shot immediately. Lammers jumped out of the way which seemed to have irritated Chinese goalie Zhang. It was Welten’s second CT career goal which gave her team the lead. The Olympic silver medallists from China struck back through their CT all-time top scorer Ma Yibo (46’) who converted China’s fourth penalty corner in the match. “We played very well although the Netherlands were the better team”, Ma Yibo said.

Play got hectic afterwards as China had a period of dominance. They put the Dutch under pressure in their own half but did not win any penalty corners. The Dutch took the lead by another goal from Welten (64') which came out of the blue. From now on the European Champions were full of self-confidence. Marilyn Agliotti (69’) finished another Dutch attack securing the third successive win in a CT opening match. Paumen said: “It’s always good to win the opening match." Coach Max Caldas added: “We played a very good match because we scored three goals. China are difficult to play. We hope that we can improve during the tournament.”
