Great Britain qualify for Sunday’s final
1st Semi Final – GBR 2-0 GER

The 4th Champions Trophy encounter between Great Britain and Germany took place under great heat in Rosario. Because temperature got higher than 36 degrees Celsius in the team bench area the first half was interrupted for two minutes to give the players an opportunity to refresh. The 36 degree temperature is being used as it is less than normal body heat and as such, any higher temperature may compromise the body’s ability to cool.

The crowd did not witness high pace during the first half as the heat was a real challenge for everybody on the pitch. However, Alex Danson (4’) created the first promising opportunity in this match when she penetrated the circle from the left but German goalkeeper Yvonne Frank was well positioned to make the save. Soon after Great Britain’s Georgie Twigg fell heavily over German defender Mandy Haase’s stick and needed some medical treatment but she was back on the field later on.

Although Great Britain stayed the dominant side, German key players Haase, team-captain Fanny Rinne, Julia Müller and Nina Hasselmann marshalled the defence to stay strong. After Danson (12’) was tackled by Rinne and Hasselmann Great Britain won their first penalty corner. Frank was able to save Kate Walsh’s attempt but was defeated by Sarah Thomas (13’) who converted the rebound. Great Britain had a few more promising attacks in the first half while Germany struggled to penetrate the British circle. The 1-0 halftime lead gave Great Britain confidence as they were unbeaten in nine Champions Trophy matches in which they have scored the opening goal, recording eight wins and one draw.

As soon as the second half had started injector Ashleigh Ball (39’) doubled the lead after she deflected the ball into the goal at Great Britain’s second penalty corner. Afterwards goalkeeper Frank kept Germany in the game making some terrific saves. Great Britain were short in numbers after the umpires had awarded a yellow card to Helen Richardson. This allowed Germany a little more space to attack, however, Great Britain’s defence was very organised and Germany could not take advantage. They substituted their goalkeeper with six minutes to go but the first defeat against Great Britain in Champions Trophy history could not be avoided. The British goalkeeper Beth Storry had kept a clean sheet for the second time in this competition.

All-time record player Natascha Keller was honored by FIH president Leandro Negre before the match. The 34 year-old is the first woman who has ever played more than 400 international matches (including indoor appearances).
