Argentina ties England 2-2

GLASGOW, Scotland — Argentina and England finished all square with a 2-2 draw yesterday in the opening game of the Men’s 4 Nations against at the Glasgow National Hockey Centre.

England opened the scoring in the 11th minute, courtesy of a carefully guided Alastair Brogdon flick into the bottom corner. Argentina was back on level terms in the 23rd minute though, Manuel Brunet taking advantage of indecision in the English defensive ranks to fire the ball past England goalkeeper George Pinner from close range.

With the sides level at half-time it was England who started the second half the stronger side and it was awarded a penalty corner in the 48th minute. Juan Manuel Vivaldi was alert to parry Ashley Jackson’s drag-flick, but Mark Cleghorne was quick to react and dispatch the ball past the Argentine’ keeper. Nevertheless, Argentina was soon back on parity with a wonderful solo effort, Agustín Mazzilli dancing through the attentions of four English defenders to slip the ball past Pinner in the 56th minute.

In the other match, Scotland lost to Belgium 4-3.

Today’s matches: Scotland v England; Belgium v Argentina.
