The shadow of a field hockey player as they run down the pitch.The Dutch women’s hockey team lost the final of the Champions Trophy 2-1 to Argentina on Sunday.

The Dutch women were without Maartje Paumen, who is injured, and had reached the London final without losing a match. Defending champions Argentina have now won the title seven times, the Netherlands six.

The international hockey calendar is currently being reformed and the six-country Champions Trophy competition is to be replaced by a global hockey league.

The final women’s Champions Trophy takes place in Argentina in 2018. The men’s event will be hosted by Amstelveen.
