Great Britain women win World League Semi-final in Valencia

Great Britain celebrate
Kate Richardson-Walsh's side only conceded two goals during the tournament

Great Britain's women made it seven wins from seven as they beat China 2-0 to win the World League Semi-final.

Britain, who qualified for the Rio Olympics by reaching the final in Valencia, only conceded two goals in the tournament.

Hollie Webb's penalty corner gave them the lead before Alex Danson dived full length to deflect captain Kate Richardson-Walsh's shot into the net.

China had a goal disallowed for dangerous height as Britain held on.

Richardson-Walsh said: "It was an amazing performance in this tournament.

"We said at the beginning that we'd take one game at a time and build momentum, and that's what we've done.

"It wasn't our most stellar performance today but we dug in and took our chances when they came. I've played with Alex a long time and it's really sweet to link up and see that corner come off."
