Great Britain, made up of entirely English players, won just one point as they finished in bottom place in the final pool positions of the PIA Champions' Trophy, writes Bill Colwill from Lahore.

After yesterday's rest day, they now play Spain today in the 5th/6th place game while the Olympic champions, Germany, meeting a rejuvenated Pakistan in the final.

If Britain lose against Spain it will not be the first time a British team has finished last in this elite event. However, the British management view the tournament as good preparation for England's World Cup challenge later this year.
