Match Report

SPAIN 1 (1) - (0) 1 ENGLAND
Monserrat Cruz 9 (F) Mel Clewlow 64 (PC)

A spirited final 10 minutes saw England snatch a draw against hosts Spain - but the point was not enough to book a World Cup semi-final place, which instead went to their opponents.

Trailing to Monserrat Cruz's ninth-minute goal, England - knowing only a win would put them into the last four - stepped up the pressure late in the game and equalised from Mel Clewlow's penalty corner.

However, they could not force a winner and now go into the fifth-to-eighth place play-offs where they will first face Japan on Friday.

England, with captain Kate Walsh back in the line-up after missing two matches because of a knee injury, got off to the start they did not want when Cruz picked up a rebound off goalkeeper Beth Storry to slide in the first goal from a tight angle.

A diving Rachel Walker just failed to deflect a long pass out of midfield in the 22nd minute before, from their first penalty corner five minutes later, Canterbury defender Clewlow drilled inches wide of the post.

Rotterdam's Helen Grant missed a great chance to equalise in the 55th minute when she failed to get a touch on a bobbling ball which came through the circle to her five yards out.

Four minutes later Grant had the ball in the net after breaking through a couple of tackles in the middle of the D - but her effort was disallowed for an infringement.

Bowdon Hightown's Sally Walton then produced a neat turn and shot which was comfortably saved by Maria Jesus Rosa, but no one was on hand to pick up the rebound.

Six minutes from time, England won another penalty corner - and Clewlow powered in a shot which squeezed between the legs of Rosa.

The Spanish goalkeeper smothered a Clewlow set-piece two minutes later - and although another corner was awarded, Slough defender Walsh fluffed the push-out and the chance was lost.

Coach Danny Kerry was dreadfully disappointed with the result and the way Spain had set up to frustrate them from the very start.

"This is probably one of the lowest points of my life," he said.

"I'm very upset and I can't describe the frustration the players, the coaching and management team feel. People who are not involved in top-level sport will not understand how low we feel.

"We struggled to break Spain down - we don't have the skill sets yet to unlock teams who are unwilling to play hockey and that is pretty much why we have a lot of pressure but don't turn teams over yet.

"Picking up the players after this will really define everything about us."

England: Storry (gk), Wooding, Cullen, Clewlow, Richardson, Wright, Rogers, Bimson, Danson, Walton, Williams. Substitutes: Grant, Ellis (Ipswich), Walker, Herbert, Walsh. Did not play: Roberts (gk), Ellis (Doncaster)
