Hannah Macleod finally gave England Ladies something to cheer at the Hockey World Cup.

In what has been a miserable tournament for England, Boston-born Macleod scored the opening goal of the game as England beat Germany 3-1 this afternoon.

England had lost their first four Pool B matches, being beaten by China, Argentina, South Africa and the USA.

But Macleod, Susie Gilbert and Susannah Townsend finally gave England something to cheer this afternoon in their final contest.
