The Dutch men's hockey team have failed to win the European Championship in the final against Germany. Holland lost 4-2 to the Germans in Mönchengladbach.

Philipp Zeller put the Germans ahead within the first minute. Roderick Weusthof equalised for the Dutch, but Moritz Fürste scored a penalty corner and Florian Fuchs put Germany 3-1 ahead. Teun de Nooijer managed to put the ball in the net 15 minutes before the whistle. Shortly before time, Oliver Korn put the Germans two goals ahead again.

On Saturday, the Dutch women's hockey team won their eighth European Championship title - also against Germany.
