Argentina Move Closer Towards the Final

XI FIP World Polo Championship

Yesterday, Tuesday 24 October saw the next stage of the Zone A qualifying matches. Argentina took to the field against Spain for the first match of the day. Even though Spain started the match with fervour, scoring the first goal of the match and already counting a one and a half goal handicap advantage, Argentina proved to be too strong for the European team. They controlled the match from the first chukka onwards, having taken mere minutes to adjust to the pace of play. Argentina closed the game 12-2, securing their spot in the next round of the Championships.

In the second, and by far the longest match, of the day, the USA came up against the Australian home team in a two-hour marathon. The match began on a very even keel with steady play from both sides, but as the match progressed the USA’s superiority began to show and they ultimately beat Australia 7-5. 
Play begins today for the Zone B qualifiers. 
The XI FIP World Championship Teams:
Zone A
Australia: Jack Archibald, Alec White, Jacob Daniels, Daniel O’Leary, Jack Kiely, James Lester, Lachlan Gilmore, George Hill & Alexander Barnet
