GB U21’s secure strong victory against Japan.

The GB U21’s squad, which include Wales’ Jacob Draper and Ben Francis, took on Japan today for their fourth match of the Sultan of Johor Cup. The team secured a strong victory against Japan; walking away with a 3-1 win. This result currently places Great Britain as the only unbeaten team in the cup!

JacobDraper  “4 wins from 4 and I think we’re on a bit of a roll! We play India tomorrow needing only a point to get to the final but all eyes are on the game tomorrow and at the task at hand”

Ben Francis “It was an incredible feeling coming back from behind to defeat Japan 3-1 on Thursday. Despite having won 4 from 4 so far in the tournament, with a point needed from tomorrow’s game to qualify for the final, it’s important that we forget about previous results and concentrate on the game in hand”

A draw or victory against India tomorrow will now see them through to the gold medal match on Sunday.
