Ireland remain unbeaten after their fourth match in front of a sell out crowd at the Electric Ireland FIH Road To London tournament which resulted in an impressive 3 nil win for the home side. That means a draw against Malaysia on Saturday will be enough to secure a spot in the final of the Electric Ireland FIH Road to London final with the winner of that match advancing to the London Olympics.

Ireland were quick off the mark against Chile opening the scoring in the 6th minute thanks to marksman's Timmy Cockram's trademark dragflick. But, despite dominating play throughout the half Ireland failed to convert and saw three more penalty corners go astray.

Ireland came out with a much more energetic performance in the second half and just two minutes in Cockram was lining up once again with a drag effort which was just wide.

Eight minutes in Electric Ireland man of the match Michael Watt doubled Ireland's lead when Watt weaved his way across the top of the 'd' to find space to nip away a powerful reverse stick shot on the 43rd minute. Ireland created many other chances a couple coming from an impressive Chris Cargo and Ian Sloan but it was Michael Watt who was on target once again when Cockram picked out Jermyn who slipped it through to Watt for a close range shot and 3-0 lead.

Ireland continued to dominate in a match that saw keeper David Harte only called into action once towards the end but Ireland finished up with another 3 points, knowing that a draw against Malaysia on Saturday will be enough to secure a spot in the final of the Electric Ireland FIH Road to London final.

Starting XI David Harte (GK); John Jackson; Geoff McCabe; Ronan Gormley; Michael Watt; Eugene Magee; Michael Darling; Timmy Cockram; David Ames; Paul Gleghorne; Stuart Loughrey.
