Scotland lost 9-0 in their opening Pool B match to eight-time winners Germany at the EuroHockey Championships.

The Scots were already trailing by 4-0 before the end of the second quarter in Antwerp, Belgium.

Germany continued their domination, even with the temporary loss of a player failing to stop them reaching 6-0, before adding three more in the final quarter.

Scotland face Ireland on Sunday, then the Netherlands on Tuesday.

The tournament also serves as a direct qualifier for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, with the winner securing a place at the Games.
