The Netherlands showed why they are the world's number one team as they battled their way to a 2-0 win against hosts Great Britain in front of a bumper crowd at Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre in London today.

 

Goals from two penalty corners - Lidewij Welten after 17 minutes and captain Maartje Paumen in the 53rd minute, were enough to see of Team GB, but it wasn't easy for the World and Olympic champions.

Whilst GB goalkeeper Maddie Hinch made a number of outstanding saves, Dutch keeper Joyce Sombroek showed why she was voted FIH Hockey Stars Goalkeeper of the Year in 2015 as she kept a clean sheet for her team.

Following their win, Netherlands star Eva de Goede said: "GB is a very strong team, their defence is great and they are very good at counter-attacking. Our strongest point is our combination hockey - that was the difference today. It was important for us that we ended this game differently to how we ended the Euros here (in 2015). We're doing great - the first two games we've got two wins, so we are going strong."  

Speaking following their defeat, Team GB captain Kate Richardson-Walsh said: "We were given a bit of a runaround today. When you play teams like the Dutch, you really must hold onto possession or you will do a lot of running. It's hugely frustrating (not having enough possession). In training we've shown we are good with the ball. We've got many highly skilled players who can play on the ball, we just need the shape and structure and belief to be able to do that against the very best sides."
