This defender deprived us from one amazing goal!

This is a clip from the 2014 Champions Trophy that happened during a game between Germany and Australia. In this case, the Hockeyroos were able to penetrate the German circle by building up a really good passing play. In this play, Jodie Kenny sent a perfect hit pass to Slattery, who entered the circle by bouncing the ball and when the German GK came out charging, she decided to lift the ball above her. At last moment, one German defender made the save of her life!
