A late Spain goal has delivered a heart breaking 3-3 draw for the New Zealand Under 21 Men at the Junior World Cup in India.<br>
<br>
The Kiwis came into their final Pool C game needing to beat the Spanish to earn a place in the quarter finals. <br>
<br>
After a tight opening period of play, Spain opened the scoring in the 21<sup>st</sup> minute thanks to a penalty corner from Llorenc Piera Grau.<br>
<br>
Following the halftime break New Zealand responded with a 44<sup>th</sup> minute strike from Sam Hiha before the Kiwis grabbed the lead 15 minutes later after a penalty corner from Jonty Keaney.<br>
<br>
The final 20 minutes of the game were thrilling with Spain equalising following a Enrique Gonzalez de Castejon goal only for Dylan Thomas to snatch back a 3-2 lead with a terrific field goal in the 66<sup>th</sup> minute.<br>
<br>
But Spain broke Kiwi hearts in the final minute with Jan Lara Rosell delivering a levelling field goal to see his side progress to the quarter finals and New Zealand miss out.<br>
<br>
The result saw Spain finish second in the pool on four points with only goal difference clinching their place as the Kiwis also finished on four after a win, draw and loss from their three pool matches.<br>
<strong><br>
NEW ZEALAND 0:</strong> (Sam Hiha, Jonty Keaney, Dylan Thomas)<br>
