Commonwealth Games: Australia through to men’s Hockey final after great escape from two goals down

The Kookaburras have survived a rare off night and a spirited England, a controversial goal the difference in their tense 3-2 Commonwealth Games men’s hockey semi-final win.

Boasting a 39-1 Games record and all six titles, Australia were expected to have few troubles on Saturday night at Birmingham University.

But they were pushed to the brink by the hosts, down 2-0 and hanging on for dear life as England peppered with corners and genuine chances in the final quarter only to be denied.

They will play India in Monday’s final after the Indians beat South Africa 3-2.
