Great Britain finish second in Pool A after defeating China
Pool A –CHN 1-3 GBR


Great Britain finish second in their group behind Netherlands on goal difference and will play the 3rd ranked team from Pool B. China finish third and will play the 2nd ranked team from Pool B.

Despite of heavy rainfall Great Britain started off with great pace. Their pressure on China led to an early penalty corner which was converted by specialist Crista Cullen (5’). Her drag flick caught the Chinese goalkeeper Zhang Lei’s pad and deflected into the goal. It was Cullen’s fourth goal in this competition making her top scorer. The 26 year old has also broken a record as she becomes the first player to score more than three goals at a single Champions Trophy tournament for Great Britain.

After China’s first promising attack, they used their team-referral because they were convinced that Tung Chunling had touched the ball inside the circle and scored. The video umpire could not make a decision on this. China kept their referral however the score of  0-1 stayed. The end of the first half did not see much action in either the circles.

Great Britain the second half with real fire and it was not long before Cullen (42’) put her name on the score sheet again. By converting another penalty corner she broke another record. Being on seven Champions Trophy career goals, she has overtaken staff-member Karen Brown who has scored six Champions Trophy goals in her career. China struck back when Fu Barong scored her first Champions Trophy goal since netting against Argentina in 2010. She is now on a competition total of 16 goals.

Great Britain maintained the pressure as they needed to beat China by at least three goals to top Pool A. Ashley Ball (54’) extended the lead to 3-1 before China created some opportunities but they failed to score from these.
