England will meet hosts Australia tomorrow in the quarter-finals of the Champions Trophy after yesterday's 1-1 draw with New Zealand meant they finished third in Pool A behind India and Germany.

Mark Gleghorne scored after 11 minutes to put England ahead in Melbourne, but New Zealand dominated the second half and Phillip Burrows pulled his side level late in the match.

Jason Lee, England's head coach, said: "We did well to adapt. Overall, it was a completely different style of hockey to the first two games and we did well to stay in the game, although I felt we actually had enough chances of our own to have won."
