    Rio '16 field hockey semi-finals:
    - Germany vs Argentina
    - Belgium vs The Netherlands

    Another Low Countries derby. The Netherlands are favourites going in. Traditionally, Australia, Germany and The Netherlands are the giants of field hockey. Belgium is more of an upcoming field hockey nation. But our team has beaten all three of them previously, Australia as recent as in the preliminaries of this Olympic tournament.


    Also, drunk interviews are the best interviews: https://www.facebook.com/RTEsport/vi...4041204478579/

    DeRozan doing everything in his power to lose this game for the US the last couple mins. Turnover, missed 3, foul all in like 40 seconds.
    So aparently they were all too drunk to get a description. Way to go! More great top athletes for kids to admire.

    Belgium just won the gold medal of the women's 4x100m relay of the Beijing Summer Olympics!

    (they came second, but the Russian team loses their medal)

    Considering the terror sh*t that went down there, it's not surprising that Belgium was the best at hauling ass.

    Last time they faced the Argentines, they lost 4-1. Argentina have the world's best penalty corner specialist (Peillat). They thrashed Germany in the semi-finals mostly due to him. So it'll be key to avoid conceding any, or keep that to an absolute minimum.

    Argentina are said to play aggressively and focused on penalty corners. Belgium's play style is a mixture of stamina and pace (similar to the Australians; we've had some Australian/New Zealandian head coaches in recent years, including the current one) and technical skill (similar to the Dutch; many of our players play for Dutch teams).

    Anyway, I don't think the Argentinians have won anything significant either. It's been the "Big Three" (the Australians, the Dutch and the Germans) that have been dividing all trophies among them for years.
