BBC Sport - World League 3: Smith 'devastated' by Ireland defeat

Smith 'devastated' by Ireland defeat

Ireland women's coach Darren Smith describes the penalty shoot-out defeat by China in the World League 3 quarter-final as devastating.

The game in Valencia finished 1-1 before the Chinese prevailed 4-3 in the shoot-out.

Victory would have virtually assured Ireland of a place at the Olympic Games and Smith believes a top-six finish in the tournament will still be enough to secure a spot in Rio next year.
