England beat China to set up Australia semi-final meeting

England have set up a semi-final meeting with Australia thanks to a 1-0 win over China in the third quarter-final of the day here at the Argentina Hockey World League Final event in San Miguel de Tucuman. A second half penalty stroke from Georgie Twigg ended 46 minutes of intense resistance from the well organised and hard-working Asians, but it was a victory that England fully deserved.

Saturday’s meeting between England and Australia – winners against European champions Germany in the morning session – will be the third time that the two sides have met in the inaugural edition of the HWL following two clashes at the Investec Hockey World League Semi Final tournament in London earlier this year. The first match ended in a 1-1 draw, with the Hockeyroos being convincing 3-0 winners of the tournament final.   

England applied almost constant pressure on the China defence throughout the first half, but did not manage to find a breakthrough against their opponents from Asia. Striker Alex Danson – who was playing in her 200th senior international match – saw a couple of efforts blocked, while two penalty corner chances came and went for the European Silver medallists. England youngster Lily Owsley also had a decent chance, but fired over the crossbar following excellent play from Nic White.

The English pressure continued in the early stages of the second half, with team captain Kate Richardson-Walsh encouraging her troops to press high in the hope of forcing an error from the structured China team. A trademark driving run from Danson earned England a 40th minute penalty corner, but Kate Richardson-Walsh’s goal-bound drag-flick was touched around the post by a Chinese stick.

The long-awaited opener arrived when Susie Gilbert – another player celebrating a caps milestone by competing in her 100th international match – earned a penalty stroke when her goal-bound shot hit the body of a China player on the goal-line. Georgie Twigg saw her weak effort saved by China keeper Wang Mengyu, but the umpire spotted an infringement from the shot-stopper and order the stroke to be re-taken. Twigg made no mistake with her second attempt, sending a low effort past Wang’s right foot to give England the advantage.

China’s best chance of the game came with less than three minutes of the match remaining. A rare defensive error gifted possession to China’s Yan Yan, who raced into the circle and slipped a pass to the waiting Liang Meiyu. A goal seemed inevitable, but Liang’s control let her down and the danger passed.

It was the last significant chance of the game, sealing England’s place in Saturday’s semi-finals.
