The Dutch opened the scoring before GB fought back through Zach Wallace and Henry Weir in the second quarter.

Jeroen Hertzberger levelled the score before Phil Roper's penalty corner restored Britain's lead.

But three unanswered goals gave the Netherlands victory in the third-place play-off in Amsterdam.

Australia, who beat GB in the semi-final, beat world champions Belgium 3-2 in the final.
