Great Britain defeated in final Test match

Bray GB
Great Britain suffered a narrow 1-0 defeat in the final match of their series against Argentina in Rosario.

Eugenia Trinchinetti netted the only goal of the game in the tenth minute which turned out to be the winner as the hosts secured a 4-1 series win.

Reflecting on the match and the series, head coach Danny Kerry said: "It was a very tight and we've come out on the wrong side of the result this time.

"There has been massive team growth and development out here and the team have grafted on and off the field.

"I'm proud of the steps we have taken forward here and the new caps will never forget this experience.

"The people in Rosario have been wonderful and we have loved every minute. A brilliant experience which will stand us in very good stead."

Scotland and Great Britain's Sarah Robertson added: We put everything into our final match to try and ensure we finished on a high. Unfortunately we couldn't get the ball over the line but put in a very strong performance.

"It's been a fantastic series against one of the top sides in the world and we will take plenty from it moving forward."

The first quarter was tight and well contested with little between the sides and no clear cut chances. However just before the first break the ball broke to Trinchinetti who slapped home from a tight angle to give the hosts the lead.

Under the lights in front of another packed the house the contest between the sides remained a close one and Argentina took their slender one goal lead into the half-time break.

The hosts increased the pressure on the GB back line after half-time but the visitors remained solid and thwarted the advanced to keep themselves in the match heading into the final quarter.

GB pushed for an equaliser putting pressure onto their hosts, but Belen Succi in the Argentina goal was equal to the tests thrown her way as the hosts held on and secured a 4-1 series win.
