The South African team, ranked 14th in the world, defeated Germany, ranked 5th in the world, with 4-3 on the scoreboard. This is the kind of victory that could inspire other participants in Tokyo. It was sensational, and the South Africans got the result their tournament has deserved.

The South African goals were scored by Matt Guise-Brown, Keenan Horne, Nic Spooner and Mustapha Cassiem.

“What a moment for South African Hockey, what a moment for South African Sport,” SA Hockey tweeted. 

Tomorrow, South Africa will be up against Canada in the Olympics pool B men’s tournament. It’s set to start at 05:15 CAT.
