I hate the move from 35 minute halves to 15 minute quarters and the excuse of "fan engagement", just a move for TV to have more ads over the same period of time but 10 minutes less actually gameplay.

Kookaburras behind 1-0 against Belgium in the second quarter, they've already beaten NZ and will beat Brazil so since they change to having quarters this Olympics they should make the quarters regardless.

Hockeyroos on the other hand are still winless, should get wins against Japan and India and make the quarters, Argentina will be more difficult.

Win 2-1

Both goals came when GB had a 10 on the field due to yellow cards.

Thought we were going to choke there at the end and come away with a draw. Good Stuff Aussies!

Kookaburras are out in the quarters, if Germany loses to NZ none of the top 4 at this year's Champions trophy will even make the semis.

Hockeyroos will play NZ in their quarter.

Beaten by Netherlands a choke? Beaten by Spain or Belgium yes, but the writing was on the wall well and truly before the Netherlands game.

In recent years I'd say Belgium has been better than the Netherlands.

NZ lead 2-0 in the final quarter, looking good for this to be the case

Yeah, people were hoping they would finally step up when it actually matters but it didn't happen, despite been dominating in games they could not score.

And lose 3-2

Semis are:
Belgium v Netherlands
Argentina v Germany

Hockeyroos are out in the quarters now as well, should have picked Anna Flanagan, another victim of Kitty Chiller.

And there you go, Belgium beats the Netherlands to get into the final guaranteed their first hockey medal since 1920, they play Argentina which I didn't expect to make the men's final.
