The Dutch beat England 2-0 to secure a spot in the final four. They have a star-studded line-up with leading tournament goalscorer Kitty van Male, 2017 FIH Player of the Year candidate Lidewij Welten and 2017 FIH Rising Star candidates Laura Nunnink, Xan de Waard and Frederique Matla.

It will be no easy feat for Australia though as they have not defeated the reigning world champions in 14 games, dating back to February 2012.

The fixture will be a repeat of the 2014 World Cup final, which saw the Dutch claim a 2-0 victory, the same scoreline of the two sides recent match-up at the International Festival of Hockey in Melbourne in November.

The young team has grown since then, particularly evolving after finishing with the silver medal at the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

“We’ve worked extremely hard especially since Comm Games,” Captain Emily Smith said.

“To be able to execute the game plan against Argentina to keep them goalless and then execute in the pressure moments is great.

“We came in with the belief we could get the result. I’m proud that we did step up and get that final result,” she said.

The Hockeyroos take on the Netherlands at 1:30am AEST on Sunday live on Fox Sports, with the winner to play either Ireland (16th) or Spain (11th) in the decider.
