Two brilliant second-half goals resuscitated Argentina’s Champions Trophy campaign on day six.
After a 2-2 first-half, a reverse strike from the top of the D by Carla Rebecchi in the 47th and a sliding finish from Rosario Luchetti took las Leonas to a deserved win.
The first half finished 2-2 with goals from Delfina Merino (32, FG) and Noel Barrioneuvo (6, PC) cancelling out Dutch strikes from Marilyn Agliotti (9, FG) and Maartje Paumen (23, PC).
But Rebecchi’s drive inside Fleur Engels left post and Rebeccchi’s finish from a superb reverse-stick cross by Augustina Garcia brought home the game for Argentina.
