The Hague, Netherlands:

Holders Australia stayed atop their group in the men's hockey World Cup by posting their second straight victory, defeating Spain 3-0 at the Kyocera Stadium on Monday.

Two early goals put the Australians in a commanding position from which the Spaniards could not dislodge them.

Spain have just one point from two games after holding England to a 1-1 draw on Saturday.

Timothy Deavin opened the scoring for Australia in the second minute in open play and captain Mark Knowles increased the lead in the 10th minute by deftly flicking in a penalty stroke.

Spain's defenders then held on against repeated raids and created a few openings themselves before Australia rounded off the scoring in the 33rd minute on a penalty corner conversion by Kieran Govers.
