Ireland celebrate their semi final win over Spain in London
Ireland have reached the final of the Women's Hockey World Cup following a spectacular sudden death penalty shoot out against Spain in London this afternoon.
Limerick's Roisin Upton once more starred for the 'Girls in Green' despite missing a penalty for her side in the opening five shots at goal.
The winning penalty came from Gillian Pinder, see above, after Ireland and Spain finished 1-1 at the end of normal time and 2-2 after their initial five penalties.
