THE HAGUE: Hosts Holland qualified for the final of the hockey World Cup after a tense 1-0 win over England at the Kyocera Stadium in The Hague, Holland.
Mink van der Weerden (pic) was the star for the Dutch, scoring off a penalty corner in the 31st minute.
Three-time champions Holland will play either defending champions Australia or Argentina in tomorrow’s final.
The Dutch had three other penalty corners, but failed to make it count. In contrast, the English had two but muffed both of them.
Van der Weerden was jubilant after getting the all-important goal.
“It was a tough match and very close. We were able to handle the pressure better. It is great to make the final and we are now looking forward to win the title,” he said.
England’s penalty corner flicker Ashley Jackson was disappointed that their attempts did not produced the desired result.
