England progressed to the Unibet EuroHockey Championships semi-finals in London courtesy of a 4-0 victory over Spain.

The hosts needed just a draw from their final Pool A match to make it to the last four after defeating Russia comprehensively and then losing to Holland, and they booked a semi-final spot against Germany on Thursday by cruising to victory at the Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre.
