England Under-18 Girls will battle for bronze in their final match of the EuroHockey Youth Championships after losing out to the Netherlands in their semi final clash on Friday.

The squad are now preparing to take on Belgium in their final match on Saturday (1pm GMT) after drawing praise from Head Coach Sarah Kelleher for the way they played against the Dutch.

“There was a lot of good stuff in the game against The Netherlands which gives us a lot to build on for tomorrow’s match against Belgium,” she said. “It’s hard to put this defeat in context for the girls, but they did play some very good hockey. It shouldn’t have been six-nil, but the Dutch are very good at taking their chances.

“We’ve come on so much as a team, so we’re going for the bronze tomorrow with realistic hopes. We’ve beaten the Belgians twice this year already, and while we’re not taking anything for granted, we are really up for it.”

The Netherlands opened their account after just two minutes through Pien Sanders, and a penalty corner on 19 minutes resulted in their second goal after their first shot had been saved.

A drag flick on 29 minutes from Michelle Fillet resulted in their third goal, and she scored in similar style on 52 minutes to put her side 4-0 ahead.

Minout Mink’s 58th minute goal and a 69th minute effort from Maud Renders completed the scoring.

England now play Belgium in the bronze medal match on Saturday, 25 July, at 1pm (GMT).
