Excellent keeping by Maddie Hinch saw England win their penalty shoot-out with Belgium 2-1 to secure 11th place in the World Cup.

Sophie Bray put England ahead in the 16th minute and it looked like her deflected effort would decide the 11th and 12th place play-off.

However, Belgium removed their keeper and pushed for a goal and were rewarded for their persistence when Stephanie de Groof scored a last-minute equaliser from a penalty corner to take the game to shoot-out.

But Hinch kept Belgium's lone scorer to Aline Fobe, while Sally Walton and Susie Gilbert were on target to secure victory for England.
