In the latest hockey news, we are setting our eyes in India at the Hockey World Cup. In the semifinals, Australia’s Kookaburras lose to Germany in the last part of the match. The Australian men’s national football team will need to wait until next year in the Olympics to reclaim their ranking. Even though the team, under Coach Colin Batch’s leadership, has done well, they lost to rival Germany.
The most painful part for the Australians, is that the last goal to seal their fate happened in the last 6 seconds of the game. Germany won 4-3. Australia was outmatched throughout the game, but still managed to pull in a lead. With just a few minutes left in the match, they managed a 3-2 win. It was reminiscent of their previous match against the Germans in the Tokyo Olympics Semifinals.

But this match will end up different, as Gonzalo Peillat made a second-half hat trick of penalty corners less than two minutes on the clock. The match was secured when Peillat’s cross gets a point as the clock read 59 minutes and 54 seconds. When you open a sportsbook, matches like these are not only exciting, but very profitable for you as well.
Many soccer fans have been betting on Germany in many bookie PPH sportsbooks. Germany has dominated the match, and despite Australia’s aggressive attempt to turn the match around, still won with more than just luck.
