England takes third for maiden World Cup medal

England earned its first medal at a women's field hockey World Cup when it beat Germany 2-0 for the bronze on Saturday.
Alex Danson scored in the 28th minute and Helen Richardson three minutes later to achieve England's best result in a major tournament, and matching third place at this year's Women's Champions Trophy, where Germany was also the loser.
Germany hasn't beaten England at the World Cup since 1994.
In the final late Saturday, defending World Cup and Olympic champion the Netherlands faced host Argentina.
