NL Beats England 2-1

.

Netherlands defeated England 2-1 Monday night at the EuroHockey Championships in their second pool match.

Captain Barry Middleton scored in the 54th minute, past Stockmann. But England's hard work was inadequate as the Netherlands finished the game in victory at 2-1.

England will face Ireland on Wednesday.
