USA’s hopes for an Olympic ticket dashed out after going down 1-2 to the South Africa at the jam-packed Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneswar today.
This was a real heartbreak for team USA who have been brilliant and unbeaten throughout the tournament.
Tyler Sundeen, while admitting that USA lost a wonderful opportunity to make it to the Olympic Qualifier, said that he is happy with the kind of effort put in by the team.
“Disappointed with the result,” Tyler posted on his Instagram story.
USA can be proud of being competitive for the entire 60 minutes of that game that is being labelled as one of the most memorable semi-finals of this FIH Series Finals Bhubaneswar.
USA will now play against the loser of the Japan vs India second semi-final match for a 3/4th position on June 15th 2019.
