Argentina returned to the defeat suffered last against Great Britain and with a marked offensive attitude managed to be superior to its rival, both from the numbers -especially in the first half - and defeated it by 4 to 3.

In just two minutes, Matías Paredes put the team in the lead and from there the Olympic champions were ahead in the rival semicircle. At nine minutes Maico Casella was in charge of changing for goal a penalty that was punished after an offense against Nicolás Acosta. With 2 to 0 up, Argentina went for more and 58 seconds to go, Martín Ferreiro set 3 to 0 with a mid-height push. New Zealand barely managed to discount on the closing of the first quarter with a cumbersome move that Sam Lane finished for 3-1.

While in the second quarter the New Zealand team narrowed the gap by 22 minutes through Lane, five minutes later Federico Fernández Onega connected a center sent by Nicolás Cicileo and scored the 4-2 partial.

During the complement the balance balanced, given the opportunities New Zealand had from the fixed that Juan Manuel Vivaldi retained brilliantly to maintain the advantage. Although Argentina sought to stretch the difference, it failed to do so during the third quarter.

Just started the last partial, the visit hit the arch defended by Vivaldi when George Muir sentenced the archer of Banco Province with a mid-height bomb. At 51, those led by Germán Orozco had a fixed play that almost did not score against Shea McAleese's good coverage of the line.

Missing three minutes New Zealand bent its efforts by pulling out his goalkeeper and adding a field player. But Argentina remained solid in defense to contain the rival advance and thus consolidate victory.
