A Great British comeback took place at the Champions Trophy in Rosario on Sunday as two Crista Cullen goals helped Great Britain fight back from two goals down to draw 2-2 with the world’s number one team, the Netherlands.

Leicester defender Cullen scored both of Great Britain’s goals from second half penalty corners in a match that also saw the 26 year old and captain Kate Walsh fail to convert penalty strokes.  And Great Britain had EuroCanterbury goalkeeper Abi Walker to thank for an inspired performance in goal as the Scottish stopper pulled off a series of excellent saves from second half penalty corners.

Great Britain Head Coach spokes afterwards about his side’s belief being key to getting results.  “The girls need to believe in themselves more,” he said.  “At half time we spoke about belief and for them [the players] to decide if they are good enough.”
