Tokyo 2020 Olympics: Team GB womens hockey team into semi-final after penalty shootout win over Spain

Team GB kept their hopes of retaining their women’s Olympic hockey title alive by dramatically edging out Spain 2-0 on penalties after a 2-2 draw in the quarter-final.

Goalkeeper Maddie Hinch was the shootout hero again as she saved all four of Spain’s attempts, just as she saved all four of the Netherlands’ attempts in the final at Rio 2016.

Britain went ahead in each half of this quarter-final through Hannah Martin and Grace Balsdon but were pegged back on each occasion in regulation time.

Hinch came up big once again by keeping Spain out, while Martin and Sarah Jones scored for Team GB to secure the victory and a spot in Wednesday’s semi-final.

Team GB face the Netherlands, while Argentina play India in the other semi-final.
