Thrilling Opener to Field Hockey Olympic Event

 

The opening day at the Olympics in Rio saw Spain get a seven goal lead over their Brazilian hosts prompting unsportsmanlike booing from the Brazil supporters.

Brazil was automatically included in the Olympic team selection due to its role as host country and not for its outstanding player quality so it wasn’t a surprising result at the end of the day.

Germany beat Canada convincingly 6-2 with four different players scoring for the German team making it an exceptionally well balanced performance.

New Zealand defended pretty well against a superior Australian team finishing with a 2-1 victory for the Aussies.

Team GB did badly on the opening day at Rio losing 4-1 to an excellent Belgium team that deserved every goal.

The Ireland team lost 3-2 to India which was a good result considering that Ireland haven’t made it to the Olympics in more than 100 years with a field hockey squad.

Last but not least Argentina tied with the Netherlands 3-3 making an exciting start to the field hockey event in Rio. The Dutch are second favourites to win the Gold at the summer Olympics this year but Argentina appear to posing a big threat!
