GBR v CHN Match HighlightsPosted June 16, 2015

Great Britain made it four wins from four as they scored in the first and last four minutes of the game to get the better of China 2-0. It guarantees they top Pool A with a perfect record, meaning they will play either South Africa or Uruguay in the quarter-final.

In a game of few chances, the first goal took just four minutes to arrive. Alex Danson picked up Kate Richardson-Walsh’s long pass down the right flank. The striker raced to the baseline before picking out Sophie Bray who turned home first time for her fourth goal of the tournament.

From there, Great Britain had most of the clear openings from play but could not extend their lead as Li Dongxiao made some key stops while Danson slipped a shot wide from Hannah MacLeod’s cross.

China, though, started to force the tempo in the fourth quarter and won the two penalty corners. The second drew an excellent stop from Maddie Hinch to deny Wang Mengyu. The killer moment came three minutes from the end as Richardson-Walsh, once again, picked out a delightful passing line through to Bray who dodged right and slipped the ball past the Chinese goalkeeper for 2-0.
