World Cup place secured!

November 8, 2018





Ireland 1 (A Sothern)     New Zealand 0



Last weekend, Alan Sothern’s 49th minute saw Ireland’s Men land World Cup qualification for the first time since 1990.

His solo goal saw off New Zealand in the World League’s fifth place playoff in Johannesburg.

The win formalised another major milestone for Ireland's Men, as they beat the Blacksticks for the first time ever, a lucky 13th meeting between the sides.

They can now look forward to World Cup 2018 in India.
