Alex Danson’s goal and assist in the 49th minute gave Great Britain the impetus to begin their World League campaign with a 2-0 victory over hosts Spain to close day one in Valencia.After three quarters of intense, but ultimately scoreless, hockey, Danson was fouled at the head of the circle off the back of Lily Owsley’s surging run. She dusted herself off to convert the ensuing penalty stroke for 1-0.

Within a minute, Danson was found on the left baseline from where she pinged a low cross into the path of Joie Leigh who applied a delicate touch into the right corner. They were the defining moments in a big tussle between two well-matched teams who took turns to carry the momentum.

Great Britain started brighter before Spain turned the screw toward the end of the first quarter. Plenty of corners were awarded to both teams with Giselle Ansley and going close while Gloria Comerma’s smash was touch just wide by Begona Garcia. Kate Richardson-Walsh hit the post from another set piece while Berta Bonastre’s sweep clipped off Maddie Hinch and onto the post before Danson’s late salvo won the day.
