India look to carry momentum against Bang

Friday, October 13, 2017

Dhaka: Bolstered by a dominating 5-1 win over Japan, India will look to carry forward the momentum when they take on hosts Bangladesh in their second Pool A match of the men's Asia Cup hockey tournament here.

The Indian team led by Manpreet Singh hardly broke a sweat during its win over Japan in its campaign opener yesterday.

Apart from an initial set back when Japan equalised in the fourth minute, India sailed through the match improvising their game hooter to hooter and rarely stumbling against the Japanese counter attack.

In their first tournament under a new coach, India meant business and found the net in each quarter, twice in the third, to streamroll their less-fancied but tricky opponents.

SV Sunil (3rd minute), Lalit Upadhyay (22nd), Ramandeep Singh (33rd) and Harmanpreet Singh (35th and 48th) were on target. India will be hoping to build on the confidence they have gained from the first match and team's the chief coach Sjoerd Marijne hopes that his players put on an improved show against the home team.
