So close! The 2009 Samsung Champions trophy is over and we are going home with silver. In the most intense game of the tournament the Hockeyroos went down to Argentina in strokes after staying at 0-0 after full time then extra time. It was a battle of the midfields with neither team having many good scoring opportunities. Luciana Aymar who sealed the deal for the Argies by scoring the final stroke. It was tough watching them sing and dance around but we all left feeling very proud of our performance. It was another step forward for us and so we will know head back home to train for the World Cup qualifiers in NZ in August.
Here is a team snap shot.
