LIVE Blog

FIH Hockey Pro League India vs Netherlands: Harmanpreet Singh converted a penalty corner in the final seconds of the match to help a resilient India fight back and hold the Netherlands to a 2-2 draw in the FIH Hockey Pro League. However, the hosts picked a bonus point from a 4-1 shootout win with their experienced goalkeeper Pirmin Blaak keeping the Indian attackers at bay. In the shoot-out, the Netherlands scored among others via Bijen Koen, and Jonas De Geus while Harmanpreet Singh and Abhishek failed in their attempts for India. Vivek Sagar Prasad scored the only goal for India in the shoot-out. The Olympic bronze medallists India will meet the Netherlands in their last league match on Sunday and will be hoping to win it and consolidate their position in the standings.

Jansen with an absolute screamer. Its high and powerful. Perfectly placed between Sreejesh and the post defender. Very, very difficul to stop these, almost impossible.

India on the attack again!

Men In Blue in the circle again. They have 3 men around the keeper, but it's Wortelboer who steals the ball before a shot can be attempted. That was a big chance for India!

19:58 PM

We need to improve and do better, said Manpreet after loss in last night's contest vs Netherlands!

19:25 PM

All to play for

This Indian team is different than the past teams. They don't give up easily even if they are down by margin of goals in the last quarter. The fight and hunger match the fitness levels. To win the title, they need to first win today's contest and then hope other results go their way too. 

FIH update is that an outright win for Netherlands today will make it impossible for Belgium and India to catch up with them in this season.
