England qualify for The FIP 2015 World Championships

Ireland beat France in the final qualifying match to ensure England’s place in Chile next year

Ireland defeated France in the final game of The 14 Goal Zone C Playoffs at the Beaufort Polo Club today. The win for Ireland has given England the place in the World Championships which will be played next year in Chile. The game between Ireland and France was a nerve-wracking battle with the Irish team lagging behind in the scores until the final chukka when they equalised with just four minutes left on the clock. Ireland pulled it out of the bag with just 14 seconds remaining to score the winning goal bringing the final score to 7-6. Ireland’s victory puts England in first place, with the home team qualifying for Chile. Ireland ended a very close second, with matching points but no goal advantage. France finished in third place with three points and Spain took fourth after they were nudged out of the running early on with losses against England, Ireland and a draw against France. The England team line-up of Peter Webb, Will Emerson, Tommy Beresford and George Pearson will be heading to Santiago, Chile at the end of March next year. Santiago last held The FIP World Championships in 1992 where England took third place behind Argentina and Chile. Zone A Caribbean and Central America Playoffs are scheduled from 8-16 December at the Dominican Republic at Casa de Campo.
