van As winning is undeserved, should have been K. Walsh or S. Michelsen.

 

The other awards are ok I guess, though I'm a bit salty cuz our men's team didn't get a single category.

:MAS & :CHN advance to the next round of Men's World League. :EGY still has a chance to advance as a best 3rd though, but they have to wait.

 

 

Today starts the second round 2 tournament in Belfast, :IRL big favorite to win. 2nd place should be between :AUT  or :FRA. A bit behind are  :POL and :WAL

They was italo-argentinians :evil: Btw, i know this problem but I think that it was legal for the Italian law, so they have italian parents or grandpartents :p You know, a lot of Argentinian was Italian too :lol:

Yeah but hockey rankings are pretty useless to determine current form. I remember we played Italy in World League last year (Olympic qualifiers) and your team was decent.

Well, we're approaching the end of world league round 2 and today we'll have the last qualified teams from men's tournament 3 (very likely :CAN & :JPN ).

 

Today also starts the last women's tournament for this round in Vancouver, Canada. Possibly the closest one too: :IND:CAN:CHI:BLR or even :URU have potential to qualify here, but there are only two places available for the next round (except for :IND who could finish 3rd and still qualify for the next round due to ranking). Really, really close level between these teams.

Men's World league semifinals final distribution:

 

Tournament 1: :ARG:NED:IND:ENG:PAK:KOR:CAN:MAS:CHN:SCO

 

Tournament 2: :AUS:GER:BEL:NZL:ESP:RSA:IRL:FRA:JPN:EGY  

 

In theory, top 8 from each tournament should qualify for the world cup. Which means, the last 2 will miss out in both.

After today's results there's a small chance of Mexican team to advance to semis; sadly, even if the manage to do so, they'll likely miss the ticket for the next round.

Good news: We have qualified for World League semifinals (as expected). 

Bad news: Our new chief coach thinks we have already qualified for World Cup :facepalm:

All world league semifinals distribution and groups confirmed:

 

Men's World League

 

Tournament 1 - London

Group A :ARG :ENG :KOR :MAS :CHN 

Group B :NED :IND :PAK :CAN :SCO 

 

Tournament 2 - Johannesburg

Group A :AUS :NZL :ESP :JPN :FRA

Group B :GER :BEL :RSA :IRL :EGY 

 

Women's World League

 

Tournament 1 - Brussels

Group A :NED :CHN :KOR :ITA :SCO

Group B :AUS :NZL :BEL :ESP :MAS

 

Tournament 2 - Johannesburg 

Group A :ENG :GER :JPN :IRL :POL

Group B :ARG :USA :RSA :IND :CHI 

 

I want Chile (W) to qualify for world cup but unfortunately they didn't get a good group. However, unlike previous rounds there aren't shoot-outs to break ties in pool stage games, so we may be able to help them by scoring a few extra goals past South Africa or India ... :jeje:
