England women's hockey team lost a dramatic semi-final against New Zealand in a shootout and had to settle for a place in Saturday's bronze medal match.
New Zealand won the shootout 2-1, after neither side could break the deadlock in four goalless quarters.
That outcome was the reverse of 2014's semi-final in Glasgow, which England won on a shootout before taking silver.
The Kiwis will play Australia in Saturday's gold medal match while England face India for the bronze.
