Australia beat England 3-0 in WC Hockey

Wednesday, December 05, 2018

Bhubaneswar: Two-time defending champions Australia scored three goals in the final quarter to beat England by a comfortable 3-0 margin and register their second consecutive win in Pool B at the men's hockey World Cup here Tuesday.

The win took Australia to the top of Pool B with six points from two games and virtually secured their place in the quarterfinals of the 16-team event. The Kookaburras had earlier defeated Ireland 2-1 in their tournament opener.

For England, the loss was a major setback after the 2-2 draw against lowly China in the opening game. Australia will play China in their last pool match on December 7, while England will be up against neighbours Ireland.

The battle between world's numero uno side Australia and world no. 7 England witnessed a boring first quarter with both the teams struggling to make inroads into the rival citadel.

The few forays both the teams made ended in no significant result.
