In the Men's Hockey World Cup, two-time defending champions Australia scored three goals in the final quarter to beat England by a comfortable 3-0 margin and register their second consecutive win in Pool-B at the Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneswar on Tuesday.

The win took Australia to the top of Pool-B with six points from two games and virtually secured their place in the quarterfinals of the 16-team event. 

The Kookaburras had earlier defeated Ireland 2-1 in their tournament opener.

For England, the loss was a major setback after the 2-2 draw against lowly China in the opening game. 

Australia will play China in their last pool match on Friday while England will be up against neighbours Ireland.

In the second match, Ireland and China played out a 1-1 draw.
