Press Release


India were beaten 0-3 by Argentina on day 9 of the World Hockey League Semi- Finals in Johannesburg. The defeat meant that the Indian eves finished second in Pool B, behind Argentina who claimed top-spot. The ongoing event is also a qualification tournament for next year's World Cup in India.

Defeat for the USA in the third match of the day meant that Argentina (WR: 3) went into their final Pool B match against India (WR: 12) knowing that they were already certain of a first placed finish. But it made little difference to their approach, as Las Leonas produced another excellent display to claim a 3-0 triumph over India’s Eves. 

Argentina needed less than 90 seconds to leave their first imprint on the score-sheet with Rocio Sanchez making it 1-0 before an open play effort from Maria Granatto and Noel Barrionuevo’s penalty stroke took the score to 3-0 at half time. Though India produced a much-improved performance in the third and fourth quarters, Argentina's lead never looked threatened.

Chahal or Axar? Who will take more wickets for India?
