The Netherlands and Germany will meet in the women's hockey final after both won semi-final shoot-outs.

The Dutch beat Argentina 4-2 on penalties while Germany edged past China 4-3 in their shoot-out after the match finished 0-0 in normal time.

The Netherlands match ended 2-2 after a controversial last-minute equaliser from Argentina's Maria Aicega.

Argentina took an early lead before goals from Sylvia Karres and Mijntje Donners put Holland 2-1 ahead.

Goalkeeper Clarinda Sinnige was the hero for the Netherlands as she saved two penalties to ensure they reached their first women's final for 20 years.

In the shoot-out, Janneko Schopman, Ageeth Boomgaardt, Mijntje Donners and Lieve van Kessel all scored for the Netherlands.

And Sinnige's saves from Maria Rognoni and Ayelen Stepnik clinched the match for the Netherlands.
