Great Britain’s men put in a super performance to reach the Tokyo Olympics, overcoming Malaysia in some style in London.
Forsyth and two more from fellow striker Sam Ward gave Britain a crucial win, and they fought very hard to secure a place in Japan.
Two early goals gave Britain the upper hand in the first quarter, and their spot on the plane always looked secure from then on in.
When the final whistle came amid the final rays of evening light at Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre, Britain rightly celebrated a job very well done indeed.
This has been a highly pressured weekend for Danny Kerry’s side, and especially after going 1-0 down in the first match they have shown resilience and quality to come through with a significant aggregate victory.
They will rightly take time to digest this milestone, and soon enough they will turn their attention to 2020; first of all the FIH Pro League and then the huge prospect of the Tokyo Olympics.
