21st August 2022, Brussels, Belgium: Day 5 of the EuroHockey Championship Qualification events continued in Dublin (w), with hosts Ireland confirming its place at the EuroHockey Championships in Monchengladbach next summer.
Day 3, Dublin
Czech Republic v Poland 1 – 0 (1 – 0)
The Czech Republic secured their place in next year’s EuroHockey Championship II thanks to a 1-0 win over Poland on Sunday morning. The only goal came from Magda Smidova when she finished off from close range.
Her side had the big chances in Q1 and Q3, hitting the crossbar and going close a number of times before Poland threw everything into the final quarter. They could not find an equaliser and so faced a nervous wait to see whether they would stay ahead of Turkey and earn the other second-tier ticket EuroHockey Championship event in 2023.
Ireland Turkey 7 – 0 (3 – 0)
Ireland defeated Turkey and rubber-stamped their ticket to next summer’s EuroHockey Championships in style at the Sport Ireland Campus with a 7-0 win.
Three goals in the second and third quarter put them out of sight against the world number 33 side, putting them on course for a third successive victory and top spot, doing so without conceding a goal.
