Danny Kerry proud despite exit

Team GB women's hockey coach Danny Kerry says that he is "very proud" of his team's performance, despite their semi-final defeat to Argentina at London 2012.

Team GB women's hockey coach Danny Kerry has said that he "couldn't have asked any more" of his players during their semi-final defeat at London 2012.

Alex Danson's late strike in the second half was not enough to spark a comeback from Great Britain, as the hosts were beaten 2-1 by Argentina at the Riverbank Arena.

"I'm very proud of what we did tonight," said Kerry. "I thought we were the dominant side in the second half, we pretty much outplayed them.

"The reason for not winning was the half-chances, not converting the opportunity, but I couldn't have asked any more from the girls.

"I felt Argentina were really just defending, not offering much other than that, but they did that well."

Kerry's team will now face New Zealand in the bronze-medal match on Friday afternoon.
