Great Britain have lost their semi-final for the fifth and sixth-place playoff on penalties against China.

The two sides were fairly equal in the first half and neither side could find the net before the break.

China managed to get the first goal of the game courtesy of a Li Xiaoqiang penalty but the Brits responded in the dying minutes of the game to draw level through Daniel English to force the match into penalties.

Despite a positive performance, GB were forced out in the best-of-three shootout, which China snatched 2-1.
