Yeah, sadly Markus Weise (who won 3 olympic golds in a row, 2004 with our womens team and 2008/2012 with our mens team) started to work for our football federation at the end of last year, you could see that it was a huge blow for our mens team, but at least they still won the bronze medal. Now our mens team has a new coach who is only 35 years old and you could see that the olympics were completely new for him ... :d

Our team is still pretty young (more than half of the players are 25 or younger and 5 of them were born in 1994 or later), so i am optimistic for 2020.

I think the future on the mens side should belong to Belgium and Germany.

 

I agree, Belgium and Germany are rather young squads. We won't fight in 2020 in the men's side (most probably), but hopefully our women's team will be back in shape by then.

If you can keep your ridiculous conversion rate of penalty corners, then you will probably win all olympic golds in the next 100 years, against Germany and Belgium this was the main reason why you won.

well, Gonzalo Peillat for sure isn't inmortal but he's only 24... I think he will break all PC goal records at this rate. Obviously his addition is one of the reasons why our team is more competitive now, before him we didn't have anyone that knew how to make a proper drag flick. Now other teams are scared to concede any PCs against us and he also allows us to do a couple other things, like the decoy play in the 1st corner today (since all opponent runners always go suicide-run into him).

Terrible decision by video ref! Goal scorer to early into circle and they still allow the goal...

Thank God it had no impact in the end!

That was a very enjoyable women's final between the two clearly best teams in the tournament :)

 

 

Congrats to the Brits for not only being the only nation to put up a real fight against our girls (instead of making it to shoot-outs with luck), but also simply being better in the final period and deserving the win :d

I am glad that the dutch girls got punished for their disgusting behavior in the end. We should have beaten the dutch team yesterday, but threw away an easy win, GB was more clutch and finished the job. Overall pretty weak performance by both dutch hockey teams, they should be much more dominant, considering the number of hockey players they have and the amount of money they invest. Hopefully GB will invest even more in the future, to attack the US in the medal table, they are on a good way to become the new GDR. :yes
