January 6, 2011
EFG International Switzerland crowned Elephant Polo World Champions with extra time victory over U.A.E. Sepoys.
EFG banked their first ever World Cup triumph with a nail-biting golden goal finish against the U.A.E Sepoys at the 29th W.E.P.A. World Championships hosted at the famous Tiger Tops Jungle Lodge, Nepal.
With the scores level at 5/5 at full time, the teams changed ends to play out a 5 minute extra time golden goal period, with Robert Mehm of EFG scoring the winner with a 30 yard forehand pile driver from outside the ‘D’ after just 30 seconds.
The Final was a ding dong affair, with the Sepoys taking an early 2 goal lead thanks to some fine finishing from their sure fire hitman ‘Jamie Seward’.
