    Netherlands met Argentina on day one of the Hero Hockey World League. A hard-fought game with some excellent hockey saw Argentina win.

    The Argentine intent was signalled when they took the lead in just the second minute of the game through a penalty corner, which top scorer Gonzalo Peillat slotted away.

    The Netherlands responded immediately with an equally well-taken penalty corner from penalty corner specialist Mink van der Weerden (5'). Three minutes later Argentina reclaimed the lead with a diving conversion by Facundo Callioni (8').

    The remainder of the first half was quiet in comparison, with both sides taking a cagey approach. And these defensive tactics continued for the first 15 minutes of the second half. It was the Netherlands who broke the deadlock in the second half when Seve van Ass (50') levelled for the Netherlands. The son of the national coach, Paul van Ass, scored with a reverse stick shot from wide left of the goal.

    Six minutes later and Los Leones re-gained their advantage when first Pedro Ibarra (56') shot home from open play and then Guido Barriedes (60') scored a beautifully-taken goal following sustained Argentine pressure.

    Argentina further extended their lead when they were awarded and converted a penalty stroke. The scorer on was Juan Ignacio Gilardi (67').

    This time Germany provided an immediate answer thanks to Thilo Stralkowski (11') netting from Germany's first penalty corner. Towards the middle of the first half the Olympic champions took control of the match but time and again New Zealand keeper Devon Manchester prevented them from scoring.

    The final match on Day 1 of the Hero Hockey World League saw hosts India take on fourth-ranked England in what turned out to be an unhappy encounter for the home team. A brace by Adam Dixon was the difference between the teams as England emerged 2-0 winners in the Pool A match.

    The first 15 minutes of the game saw both teams playing some cagey hockey as they sounded each other out, but then the Indian team raised the tempo, urged on by the noisy and enthusiastic crowd.

    Two penalty corners awarded to India amounted to nothing and gradually a lack of goals began to frustrate the home side. England began to play higher up the pitch and, in turn, were rewarded with successive penalty corners. These also came to nothing and both teams struggled to maintain composure in the attacking circle as they sought the all important breakthrough.

    That breakthrough came in the last 10 minutes of the first half as Adam Dixon (28') converted from a penalty corner. It was 10 minutes into the second half before the next goal came as, to the crowd's consternation, Dixon (45) found the net again. 12 minutes from time India scored but the goal was disallowed following a successful referral by England.

    ENGLAND vs CHINA - Women's Hockey World League Final Argentina

    England reached the semi-finals of the Women's Hockey World League Final in Argentina after edging China 1-0 in a tough quarter final encounter.

    England had the better of the first half chances; Lily Owsley sent her shot over the bar from Nic White's pass and then Susannah Townsend almost diverted in Kate Richardson-Walsh's long pass, instead finding the side-netting.

    With both teams evenly matched it remained goalless at half time.

    Ten minutes into the second half and England took the lead when Susie Gilbert won a penalty stroke after her goal-bound effort hit a foot.

    Georgie Twigg had her initial attempt saved but was given a second chance when the officials ordered a retake and calmly slotted into the bottom left corner.

    China nearly forced extra time late on. Hollie Webb lost possession to Yan Yan in her own half but Meiyu Liang failed to make contact and England held on for the win.

    England: HINCH Maddie (GK), MACKAY Kirsty (C, GK), UNSWORTH Laura, MACLEOD Hannah, TWIGG Georgie, RICHARDSON-WALSH Helen, TOWNSEND Susannah, GILBERT Susie, RICHARDSON-WALSH Kate, QUEK Sam, DANSON Alex, ANSLEY Giselle, BRAY Sophie, WEBB Hollie, BALL Ashleigh, WALTON Sally, OWSLEY Lily, WHITE Nic
