But the standout moment came from China’s Zhong Mengling, who put away her effort in audacious fashion, juggling the ball from the 23m line before lobbing it over the onrushing Amy Tennant.
One hockey supporter described it as “the coolest thing I’ve ever seen” while another sports fan joked she should take up hurling.
