Goals from Mandeep Singh and Harmanpreet Singh earned Asian champions India a 2-1 win over home favourites Great Britain in the second match of day two at the Hero Hockey Champions Trophy 2016 in London. 

With over 4000 tickets sold for the day, a big crowd were on show at the Lee Valley Hockey & Tennis Centre, but the home fans were to leave disappointed as Great Britain fell to defeat. 

For the second match in two days, SV Sunil turned supplier for 21-year-old Mandeep, with the former bursting down the right before supplying the latter with a perfect pass for a tap-in two minutes into the second quarter. 

The advantage was doubled early in the third quarter by another youngster, with 20-year-old Harmanpreet Singh dispatching a penalty stroke before an Ashley Jackson penalty corner rocket reduced the deficit but it was not enough to save his side from defeat. 

“I am very happy with the two goals and obviously the win as every match is important in our preparations for Rio”, said Indian shot-stopper PR Sreejesh after the game. “It was a great result for my 150th appearance for India.” 

“I’ve been in India three years now and I hope that people see that we are improving”, said a delighted India Head Coach Roelant Oltmans. “That for me is the most important thing, that the team is getting better and in the end they showed a good performance today. We didn’t start too well, and in the first quarter we were struggling but after that we took control of the game. But overall, we saw some great performances from some young players. The team are surprising me.”

Great Britain midfielder David Ames said: “We were a bit hit and miss, really. We played our best hockey very late on in the game and didn’t play as well as we wanted to before that. It’s a tough loss coming off the back of a decent result last night. It was frustrating not to be able to get a second goal, overall we’re not satisfied with how we’ve done today. We’ll have to look at the video and see what we can put right. We had enough circle entries and should’ve capitalised to score more goals. We’ve got make sure we improve over the coming games.”
