Speaking after the game England Captain and Reading defender Kate Richardson-Walsh said, “Playing Argentina, in Argentina, has always been one of my favourite experiences across my career.
"The atmosphere is just amazing and I’m very proud that we were able to stand up to that pressure tonight, and still play our game with that amount of noise going on!
"Picking yourself up after a defeat like yesterday’s [3-0 against Australia], both emotionally and physically, is so tough, but I’m really proud of how the team played tonight. We are definitely learning and growing as a squad all the time.”
Jason Lee, Head Coach of the England and Great Britain women’s hockey team, has named 29 athletes in his squad as he prepares for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.
After winning bronze at London 2012, Reading’s Kate Walsh, Alex Danson, Emily Maguire and Helen Richardson return to the side.
And with several other members of the squad announcing their retirement, Lee has called upon the experience of Reading’s Susie Gilbert and Sam Quek.
Captain Kate Walsh, said “It’s very exciting to restart the centralised training programme with a fresh coaching set-up and new faces in the squad.
"We’ve got a really good blend of youth and experience in the side and looking to the summer ahead, with the Investec World League and the European Championships, I can’t wait to see how the team gels and progresses.”
