Alexander Hendrix's killer penalty kick: "The best tug in the world" |  the Olympics

Alexander Hendricks is the superstar of the Red Lions at the Olympics with 14 goals, 12 of them in a penalty kick. Emmanuel Stockbroeks also concludes: “He plays great, it’s unbelievable. He’s master and master.”

“Drawing a penalty is very technical and difficult. It often happens in young people that some players have a talent for it. Alexander learned it from an early age and he trained a lot for it.”

“When you were young, you already had the certainty that he would always hit in one or two. Now he’s also very accurate. He combines strength and accuracy and opponents don’t know what to do.”

“It’s always a quick shot and you have to prove it every time, but at the moment Alexander is definitely the best locomotive in the world.”

On Thursday, Alexander Hendrix could once again confirm that standing in the final against Australia, who beat Germany in the semi-finals. Emmanuel Stockbrooks knows that “Australians dare to attack. That’s in their DNA. They really want to fight.”

“I thought it was good news that the final would be against Australia. As an athlete you would want nothing more than to win a gold medal in a fight. That would be a great sight. We also know Australia through and through. Hockey is a fairly small world all teams know each other what they can.”

“What if it’s going to be gold? I’m 100 percent sure. I already knew that when we were on the podium in Rio with silver. It wouldn’t really occur to us that we didn’t win on Thursday.”

“If they have to, the Red Lions always show some kind of deeper strength, ready to crush any opponent they face. If you have that as a team, you’re somewhat invincible.”
