New Zealand surprise by drawing with Argentina
Pool B – Argentina 2-2 New Zealand


New Zealand are the surprise of day one after achieving a tied result against the World Champions. Although Argentina fought back after being 0-2 down, the result is still a success for the Black Sticks. 

Argentina started off great on their home soil but failed to score from open play. New Zealand were penetrating the circle through counter-attacks. Although every Argentine ball possession made the crowd cheer the Black Sticks were the first team to win a penalty corner in this match. While the current World Champions did not win any penalty corners in the first half, New Zealand - who lost their two previous matches against Argentina at the recent Four Nations tournament in Cordoba - surprised by opening the scoring thanks to an open play effort from Stacey Michelsen (28'). The last time Argentina were trailing at half-time in a Champions Trophy match was in 2011 against Korea 1-1 (0-1). 

New Zealand doubled lead in yhe second half when Samantha Harrison (50’) flicked the rebound coming from the Argentine goalkeeper Belen Succi into the net. One minute later Argentine Martina Cavallero (51') scored in her debut match, sparking wild celebrations from a huge home crowd. The Black Sticks called for a video referral, but failed in their attempt to get the goal overturned. “Las Leonas” - who won the 2010 FIH World Cup in the same stadium here in Rosario - kept on penetrating the Black Sticks’ circle and created several opportunities but couldn’t defeat the outstanding defence from New Zealand. Three minutes before the end of the match Delfina Merino (67') finally equalized for Argentina after converting the rebound of a penalty corner. It was the second time Argentina have come back from being two goals down in a Champions Trophy match.

Black Stick Clarissa Eshuis played her 100th cap today.
