Quarter-final 13-Dec India vs Netherlands 1-2  L

India qualifies for the quarter-final after winning the Pool C. In their final match, they required a win over Canada and in end, they gave a dominating display for winning comfortably with 5-1 score. We started well and scored through the penalty corner in the first quarter, but after dominating the second quarter we failed to score due to poor finishing in the circle. The Canadian took advantage of our poor finishing and equalized in the third quarter. In the fourth quarter, we came out all guns blazing and gave one of the best attacking performance. We scored two goals in the first 2 minutes to restore the lead. Then an excellent execution of the penalty corner drill to increase the lead and won this match comfortably. We need to wait for knowing our opponent from the cross-over match. In quarter-final India will be facing the Netherlands.

India’s wait for the World Cup medal continues after 43 years. They lost in a close match against the Dutch side. The Indians started well scoring the 1st goal in the 12th minute but the Dutch side immediately responded scoring in 2 minutes to equalized before the end of the first quarter. After that, both teams failed to score in the next two quarters. The Dutch side was looking more superior but the Indians managed to keep the pressure on them. In the 4th quarter, the Dutch side took a lead after the penalty corner conversion in the 50th minute. Immediately Amit Rohidas made an unnecessary infringement on the Dutch player after hitting with a stick on his hand. He received the yellow card so the Indians played last 10 mins with only 10 players. We tried hard and earned penalty corner and saved one without a goalkeeper on the field. But over players failed to score despite multiple circle penetrations and the Dutch defended well for completing the victory.
