Argentina beats England to win Coronation Cup

Facundo Pieres and Adolfo Cambiaso lead Argentina to victory at Guards

ARGENTINA WON THE Coronation Cup yesterday at Audi International Day. The team of Facundo Pieres, Adolfo Cambiaso, Julio Ruggeri and Francisco Belaustegui defeated England 13-8.

The home side of Luke Tomlinson, James Beim, Mark Tomlinson and Ollie Cudmore received a one-goal advantage on handicap, but Argentina had taken the lead by the end of the second chukka. Despite a gutsy performance from all four England players, Argentina held on to the lead to win the Coronation Cup. Argentina captain Pieres was named most valuable player. 

England also lost to Argentina when the two nations last played for the Coronation Cup in 2009. This is the first year they relinquished the title since 2009 however. The loss ends a string of victories for England, who won the Nations Cup at Palermo in April, as well as the first two internationals of the English season.

England will take on the Rest of the World in the final Audi International of the year, at Chester Racecourse on Saturday 6 September.
