Cologne (SID) – German hockey women are still looking for their top form almost three weeks ahead of the Summer Olympics in Tokyo (July 23 to August 8). National coach Javier Reckinger’s team failed to advance 2–2 (2–2) in the second of the four Test matches against Argentina as part of the preparatory course in Valencia.
Reckinger spoke of a “good performance” despite the second game without a win and was satisfied: “It was nice to see how some of them rocked the team during the tough phases. We watched as we worked our way through the tough games.” You can fight the way.”
Captains Nike Lorenz (2nd) and Charlotte Stappenhorst (17th) took the German Hockey Federation (DHB) selection lead after a penalty corner, Agustina Gorzelani (11th) also after a corner and Maria Granato (24th) from Argentina. Twice for . . In the first half, the DHB women had more of the game and missed out on many promising opportunities, with the South American women being more dangerous after the break.
Lorenz & Co lost the same venue 0:1 against Spain in the new edition of the EM final on Tuesday. The men won their final Olympic Test in Valencia on Friday with a 2-1 win against Olympic champions Argentina.
“Dances” will continue with another game against Spain on Monday (3:00 PM), followed by a second game against Argentina on Tuesday (1:00 PM).
