New Zealand will play the Netherlands in the semi-finals at the junior men's hockey world championship in Singapore, despite losing 2-0 to Australia.

The Junior Black Sticks had been unbeaten in pool play and their four points were enough to go through ahead of Korea after Pakistan beat the Koreans 5-1.

Australia had already qualified and will play Germany.
