NEW ZEALAND NEEDED AN EARLY GOAL - THE BLACK STICKS TRIED EARLY ATTACKS IN BOTH HALVES BUT FAILED TO FIND THE MARK- ARGENTINA CONTROLLED PRETTY MUCH THE ENTIRE MATCH WITH 59% OF THE POSSESSION, 20 CIRCLE ENTRIES, AND 11 SHOTS ON GOAL. 

THE SOUTH AMERICANS PLAYED THE MATCH AT THEIR OWN PACE - MAZILLI SCORED FOR THE THIRD TIME IN THE COMPETITION, LUCAS VILA GOT ONE OFF A SUPERB STRIKE FROM THE EDGE OF THE CIRCLE, AND PEILLAT FAILED TO SCORE BUT ALLOWED MARTINEZ TO DO SO OFF A DEFT PC VARIATION, AND WAS SOLID IN DEFENCE.

VILA IS THE PLAYER OF THE MATCH AND ARGENTINA HAVE CEMENTED THEIR PLACE IN THE KNOCKOUTS
