England women's hockey team win again at World Cup

Women's Hockey World Cup, Argentina
Dates: 29 August - 11 September Coverage: Text reports and daily video highlights on the BBC Sport website (UK only)

England 1-0 China

England continue their fine start at the World Cup

Hannah Macleod's effort from a penalty corner helped England to their second win at the 2010 Women's Hockey World Cup at the expense of China.

Macleod bravely dived to score the only goal of the match as England made their best start to a World Cup since 1990, when they finished fourth.

Goalkeeper Beth Storry made a number of brilliant stops, including a stick save to keep out Zhao Yudiao's effort.

She also kept out Song Quingling and a Ma Yibo penalty corner.

Head coach Danny Kerry said: "We won the game in the first half. Beth was outstanding.


"China threw the kitchen sink at us in the second half and we'll have to learn to be more resolute in those situations in the future."

England's next match is against Korea on Thursday 2 September.
