India men’s hockey group couldn’t convey their triumphant energy as the Manpreet Singh-drove side staggered to a loss because of Australia in their second Group A game in the continuous Tokyo Olympics.
Australia crushed India 7-1 here at the Oi Hockey Stadium North Pitch. India will next take on Spain on Tuesday.
In the main quarter, Australia figured out how to start to lead the pack as Daniel Beale scored. The Manpreet Singh-drove India couldn’t get the equalizer in the primary quarter and henceforth the scoreline stayed 1-0.
Australia mark another blow as Jeremy Hayward went through India goalkeeper PR Sreejesh and thus, Australia took a 2-0 lead, making more tension on India. In a similar quarter, Flynn Ogilvie scored also, giving Australia a 3-0 lead.
India had no responses to whatever was being tossed at them, and they immediately surrendered another, to go 0-4 down in the subsequent quarter.
In the second from last quarter, India at last figured out how to get on the scoring sheet as 21-year-old Dilpreet Singh ascended to the test. Be that as it may, Australia indeed reestablished their four-objective lead as Blake Govers scored through a punishment stroke, giving Australia a 5-1 lead.
Minutes after the fact, Glovers scored again and Australia acquired a 6-1 lead, and India risked surrendering objectives in twofold digits. In the fourth and last quarter, Australia scored one more objective and eventually, they enlisted a roaring win.
