Pakistan has beaten England, 2-1, in a tense match and will now face Australia in a play-off for gold.

England's Coach Jason Lee said  "The guys are disappointed; they had a real sense of pride in this performance. We've still got a chance at a bronze medal and they will all be up for it in a couple of days."

After a scoreless first half, Pakistan's Shakeel Abbasi broke the deadlock in the 54th minute with the first goal of the match.

The tempo of the match then lifted, and with less than three minutes until full-time, England's Matthew Daly converted from a penalty corner to level the scores at full-time.

Abbasi was the hero for Pakistan, scoring a goal less than three minutes into extra-time.
