Japan and South Africa will go into battle on Sunday at the FIH Men’s Olympic Qualification tournament with the winners packing their bags and heading to London this summer.
The 12th team to qualify for the 2012 London Olympics will be Japan or South Africa after they lock horns in Kakamigahara.
Host nation Japan booked their place in the final after coming through a hard fought clash against China as they were forced to come from behind to record a 3-2 win and qualify for the final.
The win for Japan meant that South Africa had already reached the final before they took to the field against Austria in the late game.
South Africa already knew they were in the final and they did not seem to be firing on all cylinders as they laboured to a 2-2 draw against Austria.
Austria will now face China in the third place game on Sunday.
