GBR V IND HighlightsPosted July 5, 2015

Barry Middleton celebrated his 350th international appearance with a goal as Great Britain powered to a convincing 5-1 win over India to claim third place at the FINTRO Hockey World League Semi-Finals.

“It’s been a good week”, said team captain Middleton, reflecting both on his milestone and the crucial fact that his team achieved qualification for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games here in Antwerp.“Obviously it is nice to get 350 caps, but this was all about qualifying for the Olympics. Once we had done that, we had the chance to show how good a team we are. We did that against Australia without getting the win, but we wanted to finish the tournament off properly today and I think we went and did that.”

Great Britain soaked up some Indian pressure early on before snatching an early lead through Alastair Brogdon got a crucial touch on Dan Fox’s backhand strike from a second phase penalty corner.

Chris Griffiths doubled the advantage in the second quarter with an instinctive touch from a superb Nick Catlin pass before GB produced a rampant third quarter performance to effectively kill the contest, with Ashley Jackson, Adam Dixon and Middleton taking the score to 5-0.

India scored a consolation in the final minute thanks to Rupinder Singh, who sent a low drag-flick past goalkeeper James Bailey, who replaced George Pinner four minutes earlier.

“I think we started very poorly and gave GB too much of an advantage,” said India captain Sardar Singh. "We are playing with a new strategy and it took some time to adjust, but we have some young players who have done very well playing against higher ranked teams and learned a lot.”
