Netherlands beat England 1-0 to enter men’s hockey World Cup final14062014 Olympic silver medalists The Netherlands defeated England 1-0 to enter the final of the men’s hockey World Cup at the Kyocera Stadium in The Hague, Netherlands on Friday. Chasing their fourth World Cup title, hosts Netherlands rode on a penalty corner conversion by Mike van der Weerden in the 31st minute to overcome the dogged England defence. Van der Weerden sent a drag flick, from Netherlands’ second penalty corner, soaring into the net to the left of English goalkeeper George Pinner, who warded off many raids by the rampant Dutch forwards on Friday.

The final will be played on Sunday.
