Goalkeeper Danneberg won the match

Goalkeeper Jean-Paul Danneberg made two saves from penalty shootouts, helping the team qualify for the World Cup semi-finals for the first time since 2010. That was enough,” he said.

The DHB selection will face three-time world champions Australia in the final four-team round in India on Friday. “I’m very proud of the team and fortunately we have a goalkeeper like Jean-Paul,” said Germany captain Mats Grambusch, who took his already battered team to an incredible comeback.

Captain Grambusch (57th minute) and his three-year-old brother Tom saved the German Hockey Federation’s (DHB) selection with goals in the final phase of the penalty shootout at seven meters (58th). Zachary Wallace (11th) and Liam Ansell had previously scored for England after a penalty corner (32nd) in Bhubaneswar, India.

In the dramatic final stage, Henning kicked his goalkeeper off the field in favor of another fielder. And the national manager also had the right instinct to nominate Danneberg for penalty shootouts.
