Korea hold Australia

Australia or Korea could have put themselves in a good position to qualify for the final had either won the match, but now the two finalists will be decided on Saturday, in matches on the final day of the preliminaries.

Australia will play China while South Korea meet Pakistan. India have Egypt in their sights while Malaysia have completed their fixtures but need to wait for Saturday’s results to know its fate.

Australia scored through Kieran Govers in the fifth minute and Matt Ghodes in the 48th minute. The Koreans were on target through a Nam Hyun-woo penalty corner in the 25th minute and a goal from Ro Jong-hwan in the 58th minute.

Earlier, Pakistan kept up their chase for a place in the final with a 6-2 win over Egypt. Pakistan now have eight points and will complete their fixtures on Saturday against Korea.
India are set to grab one berth as they need to beat Egypt on Saturday in their last group match.
