THE HAGUE: Defending champions Australia confirmed their status as the top team in Group A when they ended the group phase unbeaten in the World Cup at the Kyocera Stadium in The Hague, Holland.

Kieran Govers set Australia on the path to victory with a third-minute goal. Chris Ciriello was on target twice in the 16th and 22nd minutes. Jeremy Hayward netted the other goal in the 20th minute.

In the semi-finals, Ric Charlesworth’s Australia will play the runners-up of Group B, which will be decided today when Argentina play South Africa.

India will play in the ninth-10th classification match after Spain, who beat Malaysia 5-2 later in the day, pipped them to the fourth place in the standings.
