England defeated in Copa de las Naciones opener

The 26-goal Copa de las Naciones got underway yesterday at Palermo

ENGLAND LOST OUT to the Rest of the World in the opening match of the 26-goal Copa de las Naciones.

The team of Luke and Mark Tomlinson, James Beim and Ollie Cudmore were narrowly defeated 12-11 by the Rest of the World line-up of Pascual Sáinz de Vicuña, David Du Plessis, Nachi Du Plessis and Francisco Irastorza.

England led for much of the match, but the Rest of the World levelled the score in the final chukka. Despite a goal from Luke Tomlinson putting England in front once more, the Rest of World soon replied, with another goal of their own, before successfully converting a penalty to secure the win.

In the second match of the day, Argentina defeated Colombia 14-10. Action continues tomorrow, with England facing Colombia and Argentina taking on the Rest of the World.
