England secured a fantastic 3-1 victory over Australia to take the bronze medal at the Hero Hockey World League Final.
It was another gritty performance from England as they dug deep to secure the victory and take the third place.
Goals either side of half-time came from Tom Carson, and the crucial winner came from experienced captain Barry Middleton.
The last time England had beaten Australia was back in 2010 in the same stadium in Delhi at the World Cup where the score was 3-2.
Ashley Jackson and James Tindall (2) were on target that day.
In the earlier matches of the day Germany beat Argentina 2-1 to secure seventh place and Belgium secured fifth with a win against the hosts India.
In the final match of the tournament the Netherlands handed out a 7-2 thrashing of New Zealand to claim the gold medal.
