Argentine Captain cleared

The Argentine team made a successful appeal against the sanction to captain Mario Almada, who was suspended for the next two world level event matches played by Argentina.

The suspension arose from an incident where he allegedly spat at Ronan Gormley in Argentina’s match against Ireland on Saturday 9 February.

The FIH Appeal Jury decided that there was insufficient evidence to uphold the two match suspension and therefore the player was eligible to take the field in the final match of the WorldHockey Olympic Qualifier against New Zealand on Sunday.
