Hockey highlights - India 2-3 England
England beat India 3-2 to maintain their 100% record from four matches and reach the semi-finals of the World Cup for the first time in 24 years.
James Tindall scored after 16 minutes to put England 1-0 up at half-time.
Ashley Jackson's scorching shot from the edge of the area doubled their lead before his second goal made it 3-0.
The hosts fought back well with goals from Gurwinder Singh Chandi and Rajpal Singh, but England, who play Spain on Monday before Thursday's semi, held on.
Victory maintains England's dominant form at the tournament, providing further optimism that they can match or surpass their achievement of 1986, when they lost in the final to Australia, two years before going on to win Olympic gold in 1988.
Now we must enter the final and then win the World Cup
England head coach Jason Lee
"It hasn't really sunk in yet," said captain Barry Middleton. "Reaching the semi-finals is unbelievable.
"That was one of the best games I've ever been involved in and I'm just so proud of our players."
Defeat put India out of contention after their third defeat of the competition.
The hosts had their fair share of chances, however, and should have drawn level right at the death but Singh missed a clear opportunity on the goal-line.
England, the European champions, proved more clinical, taking their chances well either side of the break.
Tindall was central to England's attack, scoring his third of the tournament in the first half.
