Posted On 17/08/2021

Day 3 here in Gniezno saw Pool A in action and no one team assured yet of a semi-final place after 3 days of play. The final games tomorrow will determine the lineup.

Match 7: Ireland v Italy 1-1

Ireland was held at bay to a 1-1 draw by a well-organized Italy, Ireland on four points from six after day two of the EuroHockey Championships II in Gniezno, Poland.

O’DONOGHUE’s seventh-minute flick was countered by SIOR in the 13th minute. Italy’s patient defense never caved in and offered Ireland very few chances.

Match 8: Poland v Croatia 4-2

Croatia surprised hosts Poland going ahead via 2 excellent short corner strikes. MUCIĆ on target twice in the 6th and 8th minute. PAWLAK scored for Poland on the stroke of half-time (1-2) leaving it all to play for in the second half.

A nice deflection from GUMNY 5 minutes into the second half put the hosts back on level terms, much to the delight of the home crowd.

A frantic second half saw Poland with more possession and chances which the Croatian defence stood firm and didn’t give away easy penalties. A pc in the 50th-minute rebound and the hosts took the lead for the first time in the game JARZYŃSKI on target. A superb solo run from RUTKOWSKI put Poland ahead 4-2 heading into the last 3 minutes of the game, which they held onto.
