The New Zealand men's hockey team has lost 3-1 to Germany in their opening match at the Four Nations Tournament in England.

Two of the Black Sticks new caps, Blair Tarrant and Stephen Jenness made their international debut and while the final result was not what they would have wished for, the coach Shane McLeod says the new caps did impress.

The Black Sticks Men next take on Japan on Thursday morning.
