Action from the Australia v New Zealand fifth-place play-off

The Australians came to Athens looking for their third gold medal in a row but a poor performance in the pool stages mean they will go home without a medal.

South Korea beat Japan 3-1 in the seventh-place play-off.

South Africa needed an extra-time penalty corner goal to edge out Spain 4-3 to finish ninth and condemn the Spaniards to 10th and last place.
