Australia, Britain advance to field hockey semis

London, England (Sports Network) - Australia and Great Britain claimed the final two semifinal spots in the men's field hockey tournament on the last day of group play at the London Games.

Australia posted a 7-0 win over Pakistan in its final Pool A game, winning the group over Great Britain, which could only manage a 1-1 tie against Spain.

The Netherlands had already clinched a spot in the semis heading into Tuesday's action, but it still posted a 4-2 victory over South Korea to win Pool B going away with a perfect 5-0 record.

Germany needed only one point to earn the second semifinal spot from Pool B and did enough with a 5-5 tie against New Zealand.

The semifinals are set for Thursday when the Netherlands faces Great Britain and Germany battles Australia.
