England will not be thinking beyond the EuroHockey Championships semi-final when they face Spain on Friday (19:30 BST), says forward Alex Danson.

A hat-trick from Danson guided England to a 4-1 win over Germany to claim top spot in Pool B and book a last-four place at the Olympic Park.

"You never want to look too far ahead," she told BBC Sport. "But if I am honest, it would be incredible, absolutely incredible.

"We are a one-game mentality team."

England are unbeaten after three games - as are Spain - with the winners set to play either Germany or the Netherlands, who meet in the other semi-final at 13:15 BST.

Danson is expecting a fast, exciting match against the Spaniards.

"They have a lot of movement in their play and they have got a lot of very skilful players," she said.

"There will be a lot of fight in the game and we will certainly match that."
