23/07/2014 With one win and one draw each, Spain and Germany could still grab a ticket for the semi-finals. Both teams played a very high pace in the opening quarter. Germany had the most ball possession but they were to impatient and made too many mistakes. During the first half most of the action took place on the midfield and we had to wait until the second half to see the first goal. Enrique Gonzalez de Castejon had already shown his dribbling skills plenty in the first half and in 39th minute he could finish one of his solo’s off with a reverse stick shot on goal. Ten minutes later captain Tom Grambusch dragged the German equalizer high in the net on a PC. In the sixtieth minute Grambusch scored his second on PC. But Spain didn’t give up, three minutes before full time PC was awarded a PC and Eduardo Garriga dragged the 2-2 hard on the backboard. Spain kept pushing for a winning goal but didn’t manage to make the necessary goal.
Germany, Spain and the Netherlands all finish with 5 point in pool B. Germany finishes first with a goal difference of +7, the Netherlands grab the second place.
Final score 2-2 (0-0)
’39 Enrique Gonzalez de Castejon (ESP) 1-0 (FG)
’49 Tom Grambusch (GER) 1-1 (PC)
’60 Tom Grambusch (GER) 2-1 (PC)
’67 Eduardo Garriga (ESP) 2-2 (PC)
