Match Review

The last match on Pitch 2 for the day ended with a final scoreline not quite reflecting the course of the match. While Spain were the better team over stretches of the match, the difference was not five goals worth, but mostly the finishing: while Spain cleverly took advantage of their opportunities, England had a number of chances throughout the match but just couldn't make them count. Not even a penalty stroke could get the English on the scoreboard, with Josie Inverdale putting the ball just wide off the right post in the second half.

For the Spanish, Carola Salvatella built a foundation for success with two first half goals, first tapping in a long ball into the circle that snuck past several Englihs players, then finishing off a quick break.

In the second half, it was Patricia Maraña made good use of a penalty corner, quickly followed by the Iberians fourth goal when Berta Bonastre too advantage of a moment of confusion in the English defense to drive a pwrful hit into the boards from the middle of the circle. As the English grew more and more agitated, Maria Tost piled on the last goal for the final 5-0 scoreline with a straight hit from the top of the circle.

Spain thus take an important victory in pool D, in which the places in the semi-finals are expected to be most hotly contested, and England will need to recover uikly from today's disappointment to stay in the race.

Voices after match:

England coach Craig Keegan: "We stuck to our game plan. We have a very young team, it is their first experience at this level and it was tough. Our goal was playing in the Top 8. That is still achievable and we will continue to fight. 

Spanish coach Jorge Donoso Bailon: "This result is a surprise to me because England have a strong team. I think we were strong in defence and this was the key today. When we defend well, we are also attacking strong. Finishing fifth here in Mönchengladbach would be great, reaching the semi-finals would be a dream for us."
