India bounced back from conceding a late equaliser to defeat Korea in the first match of day four at the men’s Hero Hockey Champions Trophy 2016 to keep alive their chances of reaching Friday’s competition final in London. The result moves the Asian champions onto seven points from the four matches they have played at the Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre.
The in-form Indians, ranked 7th in the FIH Hero World Rankings, were arguably the better team against Korea, although the youthful Koreans gave yet another excellent performance to show that this team has a very bright future. 
Lively India attacker SV Sunil, who was captain for the day, started and finished a brilliant attacking move to give his side a 1-0 lead nine minutes after half time. A cool deflection from Kim Juhun three minutes from full time looked to have sealed a point for Korea, but India hit back seconds later through Chandanda Thimmaiah who scored from close range after a defensive error from the Korean side. 
“We had a lot of chances up front but we couldn’t convert”, said India striker Manpreet Singh. “I think overall our team performance was very good because we conceded a goal late but in the next minute we hit back with a goal of our own.” 
India defender VR Raghunath said: “We are still in the process of preparing for the Olympics right now and trying to figure out combinations. The next match is very important for us, and we are taking match by match. I don’t know if we will make the final or not but we want to do well and show our best hockey.”
