It took a heroic fight-back against Australia and a scrappy draw with Spain to get there, but the GB team made it to the Olympic men’s hockey semi-final: as they would have expected to since they are ranked 4th in the world.
They didn’t expect to suffer a record-breaking (2-9) defeat at the hands of an excellent and quite lethal Dutch team. Ah well: there’s always the bronze medal match tomorrow. It’s only against Australia. Time for more heroism.
