Hockeyroos just can’t get trophy
A HOCKEYROOS side packed with experience and youth has shown it has no trouble making finals. Winning them, however, is another story.
Fresh off going down to the Netherlands 5- 1 in the Champions Trophy final at the end of November, the Australian side know if they want to win gold at Tokyo 2020, they need to score under pressure.
It’s a frustrating, but familiar, scenario for captain Emily Smith.
“To lost 5- 1 in a grand final is embarrassing. I had a good chance in the first minute of the game but didn’t put it away,” Smith said.
