Snow Polo World Cup Day 2

Results from today’s matches

The England team are doing us all proud at the FIP Snow Polo World in Tianjin Goldin Metropolitan Polo Club, China with another win. Following on from yesterday’s 6-5 victory against Argentina, today England faced the mighty Australia, and although the match wasn’t quite as high scoring, England managed to secure a 3-1 win. This double win combination means England have secured themselves a place in the Semi Finals on Saturday 21 January.

In the Semi Final England will face either 2016 champions Hong Kong or the USA, who are scheduled to play each other tomorrow, Thursday 19 January. Today’s action also saw South Africa qualify for the Semi Finals after defeating USA 5-2, and the outcome of tomorrow’s match between Argentina and Australia will decide which team will take on South Africa in the Semi Finals.
