Underrated Team Argentina in 2nd minute surprised the opponent and Sebastien Marengo scored first goal with nice sreen shot. But Germans in 6th minute performed their power and it seemed that Latin Americans have got no chance. At first Wertham sended the puck in front of the open net to Marvin Wintgen and he shot easily. Than Adriano Carciola with easy shot headed between Petasny´s pads.

The same player added other goal in 13rd minute and Team Argentina seemed destroyed. But Guzman and Marengo with two goals tied the game and revived the Argentine hopes. But closely before the half Team Germany already reigned on the playground. Yanick Wertham scored twice and arranged a quiet intermission for his team.

In the second half the Germans got bigger the difference on the score 9:3 and even so Team Argentina in the final minutes netted three times, German won could not be at risk.

So Argentina lost the open game but it is not so sad. „It was our first game here so it is not so bad. I think that we will improve. We played well in the final minutes and we scored three goals so it will stimulate us to next game,“ finds the positives Andres Perez Cuesta.

Jesse Panek (Team Germany coach): I was satisfied with the game instead of final five minutes. Than our players stopped playing, they did not push forward and let opponent play. But we are glad, that it finshed well for us. We would like to win the group C, the decisive game is going to be against Team Great Britain.

Oscar Marengo (Team Argentina coach): At fist we were only in defence, but than we knew how to play and we scored several times. But with more offensive style we allowed more goals as well and the opponent earned a huge margin.
