German eves lift Champions trophy

July 17, 2006 12:23 IST

A last-minute goal by Fanny Rinne helped Germany to their first Champions trophy title.

The German eves rallied to beat China 3-2, after the Asians had twice taken the lead, in Amstelveen on Sunday.

China opened the scoring in the ninth minute through Li Hong Xia before Rinne equalised two minutes later.

A Ma Yi Bo penalty corner in the second half saw China lead again briefly but Natascha Keller brought Germany level, before Rinne struck in the last minute.

Hosts Netherlands were third as they beat Argentina 5-4 in a penalty-stroke competition after the match had ended 1-1.
