Barry Middleton from Marlow, High Wycombe-based Ashley Jackson and Beaconsfield’s George Pinner are all in the England squad hoping to reach Sunday’s final.

England drew their opening World Cup group game with Spain 1-1 before beating India 2-1.

Jackson then scored in a 2-0 victory over Malaysia and although they lost 5-0 to Australia after that they rallied to beat Belgium 3-2, with Jackson again on target.
