England and Spain have made it to the quarter-finals of the Women's International Hockey Federation (FIH) World Cup after recording cross-over wins against South Korea and India at the Estadi Olímpic de Terrassa in Spain.

The results of the two contests were far from similar as England racked up a 5-0 win and Spain needed a late winner to progress to the next round.

England's rout started in the second quarter when Giselle Ansley opened the scoring in the 17th minute before Tessa Howard doubled her nation's lead three minutes later.

Ansley netted England's third minutes prior to the end of the half.

Hannah Martin and Elena Rayer combined in the final quarter to complete the victory.

It was quite the win for England's Laura Unsworth, who celebrated 300 caps for England and Britain.

In the other cross-over match, Spain were frustrated by a phenomenal goalkeeping performance from Savita.

At one moment she recorded three consecutive saves, keeping out Xantal Giné twice and Begoña García in quick succession.

India started the second half on the front foot, though soon it was both sides creating chances.

However, the deciding moment came through a goal from Marta Segú as she followed up Savita's save from Clara Ycart.

Earlier in the day, China defeated Chile 3-0 in one of two classification matches.

The first two quarters saw the two teams equally matched before Ma Ning opened the scoring in the 45th minute.

Zhong Jiaqi and Cui Qiuxia added to their tally in the fourth quarter.

Ireland also overcame South Africa 2-0, thanks to goals from Sarah Hawkshaw and Róisín Upton.

England are scheduled to play Argentina in the quarter-finals with Spain up against Australia.

South Africa are now set to play Chile while Ireland take on China in the next round of classification fixtures.

These matches are due to be held on Tuesday (July 12) alongside quarter-final ties between New Zealand and Germany, and The Netherlands and Belgium.

Tomorrow's classification matches feature Canada playing India and Japan facing South Korea.
