Women's hockey highlights: Great Britain 3-1 Spain

Great Britain's women set up an Olympic semi-final on Wednesday against New Zealand with a 3-1 victory over Spain.

Lily Owsley added a third goal before half-time, with Georgina Oliva scoring Spain's consolation late on

Germany beat USA 2-1 to set up a semi-final against the Netherlands, who held off Argentina to win 3-2.

"Our form reminds me of the Olympic qualifiers in Valencia," said Kate Richardson-Walsh, Great Britain captain.

"We built momentum game to game and we went unbeaten at that tournament. It feels the same as that.

"We don't expect to win, we believe. We believe we can win, but we must do our jobs. We have to execute the tactics laid out by the coaches.

"We go back to square one for the next game. We can't go into the New Zealand game thinking emotionally. We believe we can get a medal but it's off in the distance and we are focused on the semi-final."
