  1. i think argentina played so well. they showed skills which is totally lost for ages . NZ won but i believe everyone in that stadium knew who were the champions .

  2. Agreed with Argentina playing well but they conceded their opportunities. If they don’t score, they don’t win.

    NZ played well throughout the tournament but the main event is actually the Olympics, not this.

  3. I get what you mean. I was rather surprised by NZ’s performance in the London Olympics too.

    Well, Australia did not come to Ipoh this year, and NZ was seeded 3rd.

    I guess the luck of the draw played a part also.
