England Women opened their World League campaign in Valencia with a win over the hosts.
Joie Leigh and Alex Danson scored in the 2-0 victory over Spain at Betero.
Speaking to the International Hockey Federation after the game, Alex Danson said: “We are absolutely delighted. One of our real strengths is we have time together and we do our research. The Spanish team are fantastic so we’re delighted with how it went.
“For both teams, penalty corner defence was world class. It went down to the little moments so we’re delighted to come away with the points.
Britain face Argentina on Saturday.
