Three first-half goals in the final from Champions Trophy holders Argentina stunned the home crowd at the Wagener Stadium in Amsterdam.

But Dutch hockey captain Maartje Paumen raised the roof with a penalty corner goal after the half-time hooter, then chucked in two more corners to set up extra time.

Withthe scores still locked at 3-3 the 2011 Chhampions Trophy final eventually went to one-vs-one eight seconds to score penalties and the Netherlands held their nerve to score three penalties to two.

More to come.
