The Pool games are complete, the business end of the Tournament starts tomorrow with the KO quarter final line-up now known. Ireland were the first of the Europeans to qualify for the 1/4 Finals with a 2-0 win over Italy, their pole position in Pool A has earned them a 1/4 face to face with Trinidad and Tabago. Ireland’s captain on the day Mitch Darling spoke about their ambitions for the Tournament.

Italy finishing 3rd in Pool A will play Canada, a tough fixture for the Italians, but nothing will motivate them more than the golden ticket of qualifying for the semis, which would see them a step closer to one of the 3 slots on offer in HWL3.

Austria finished 2nd in Pool A following a comprehensive win over Chile 5-1. They face a tough test in their 1/4 Final game v hosts USA who will be smarting from their 4-2 defeat to Russia, who finished top of Pool B and now face Chile to progress to the 1/2 Final stage.
