Ipoh (Malaysia): New Zealand beat Argentina 1-0 to clinch their maiden Sultan Azlan Shah Cup title on Sunday.
The match-winning goal was struck by Andy Hayward, who converted the team’s first penalty-corner by beating Argentina goalkeeper Juan Vivaldi with a low shot.
It was the fifth penalty-corner conversion for Hayward, who played a key role in New Zealand's campaign that saw them top the round-robin league after posting victories in their initial four matches. New Zealand have claimed the bronze medal four times, including consecutive podium finishes in 2008 and 2009, in the past editions of the tournament.

Argentina did well to make it to the final after losing their first two matches, but were not able to breach the New Zealand defence led by goalkeeper Kyle Pontifex.
