Clinical Dutch end England women's EuroHockey hopes in Germany

England women's hopes of a European hockey title evaporate as they lose their semi-final 2-0 to a superior Dutch side in Moenchengladbach, Germany on Thursday.

Carlien Dirkse van den Heuvel nets an opening tap-in early in the first half and Kim Lammers' deflection kills off a disappointing, disjointed England.

They will now face either Spain or Germany for bronze on Saturday.
