Great Britain’s Under-21 Men maintained their one hundred per cent record coming back from 1-0 down at half time to beat Japan 3-1 in their final round-robin match at the Sultan of Johor Cup in Malaysia on Thursday.
Surbiton’s Zach Wallace, in the Great Britain starting line-up once again, scored Team GB’s third goal with one minute remaining.
Ramu Watanabe gave Japan the lead on the stroke of half time, with former Surbiton player, Edward Way, levelling things up at the end of the third quarter, both goals coming from penalty corners.
With six minutes left, Callum Mackenzie gave Great Britain the lead for the first time, before Wallace sealed the victory.
Australia beat India 4-3 and Malaysia beat the USA 18-0 in Thursday’s other action.
Although Great Britain are the only remaining unbeaten team, they can still miss out on a final place if they lose to India and Australia beat Malaysia as Great Britain, India and Australia would all be on 12 points, but Great Britain have an inferior goal difference. Great Britain therefore need a point to make sure of finishing in the top two of the round-robin table.
