    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 meet the winners of the other semi-final between Australia and India in Saturday’s gold medal match.

    Alex Danson made her 300th international appearance, but was one of four England players to be denied from close range in the shootout.

    Earlier on Thursday, Wales beat Ghana in a shootout to place ninth in the competition while Scotland comfortably beat Malaysia 4-2 to finish in seventh.

    England’s men will take on favourites Australia in Friday’s semi-final (12:45 BST).
