- From the section Hockey
England's men begin the defence of their European title with a stuttering 4-2 victory over Ireland in Moenchengladbach.
The title-holders come from behind to win thanks to goals from Matt Daly, Barry Middleton (2) and Ashley Jackson.
Captain Middleton later tells the BBC that he is happy with the performance, adding: "Nobody goes into a tournament and plays 70 minutes for five games the best they can."
