Great Britain skipper Barry Middleton believes his side ended their Hockey World League campaign in style after seeing off India 5-1 on Sunday.

Middleton and co showed their class as they cruised to victory in Antwerp and secured themselves the bronze medal.

The win was the icing on the cake for the GB side after they confirmed qualification for next summer’s Olympic Games and only suffered one defeat – a 3-1 loss to Australia in the semi-final.

The Brits got under way through Alastair Brogdon before Chris Griffiths doubled the lead and Ashley Jackson added a goal of his own.

Adam Dixon then converted a penalty corner before Middleton joined the party– Rupinder Singh on hand to fire in a consolation.

And Middleton – who made 350 combined appearances for Great Britain and England – was delighted with a job well done.

“It's been a good week and nice to get 350 caps,” said Middleton. “This was all about qualifying for the Olympics, and once we’d done that, we wanted to go and show what a good team we are.

“We did that against Australia without getting a win, so we wanted to finish off the tournament properly and I think we went and did that. We can be really proud of what we’ve done over these two weeks

“Something we pride ourselves on is being good at the end of the game and still pushing on and it worked for us.”
