Thumping win for India. Yet another win for India. Ramandeep Singh and Chinglensana Kangujam were brilliant today, even though Sardar Singh was happy to hold India’s backline. And here’s that moment of brilliance from Ramandeep Singh
ndia entered the match as the obvious favourites, having beaten Pakistan in their last two meeting – in the Hockey World League Semi-Final in London earlier this year. In those matches, India had scored 13 goals and conceded just one.
But India started the proceedings on a cautious note, rolling the ball and double-checking their every move even as Pakistan got the first real chance of the match in the fifth minute.
Then, after a series of attacks and counter-attacks, India scored the first goal of the match with Chinglensana Kangujam finishing a Lalit Kumar move with an unstoppable strike in the 17th minute.
India won by 3-1 lead
