Holland too good for England in semi-final
Hosts Holland brushed England aside 3-1 to set up a final against Belgium at the men's EuroHockey Championships in Amsterdam.
Mirco Pruijser scored twice as Holland kept on course for a successful title defence.
Although Mark Gleghorne pulled a goal back on 42 minutes from a penalty corner, the Dutch were always in control, cheered on by a partisan support at the Wagener Stadium.
Belgium, meanwhile, came through after a 2-0 penalty shoot-out victory against Germany, the six-time champions, to join their women's team in making the final.
The semi-final ended 2-2 after a late goal from Germany's Benedikt Furk, but the six-time champions saw all four of their efforts in the shoot out stopped by Vincent Vanasch.
Earlier, Ireland were beaten 1-0 by Spain in Pool C.
England's women also lost their semi-final against Holland, so will meet Germany in a third-place play-off on Saturday, when Scotland will be looking to beat the Czech Republic in their battle to avoid relegation to the EuroHockey Nations Challenge while Ireland play Spain.
