IND v POL Goal 3 for INDPosted June 23, 2015

A rare goal from India captain Sardar Singh helped his team overcome a strong challenge from Poland, running out 3-0 winners to claim their second win in Pool A at the FINTRO Hockey World League Semi Finals in Antwerp.

India’s talisman fired home a backhand rocket from the top of the circle seven minutes after half time break, adding to a delicate flicked finish from Yuvraj Walmiki in the second quarter. Devindar Walmiki - the younger brother of Yuvraj - also got his name on the score-sheet with an angled deflection eight minutes from the end of the game, putting the result beyond all doubt and moving India onto six points and leaving their European opponents still on zero.

“It has been a while since I have scored so it was a good time and it was a nice goal”, said India captain Sardar Singh after the game, who will now ensure that his troops are focussed for Thursday’s meeting against eternal rivals Pakistan.

Poland were delighted to welcome Bartosz Zywiczka back into the action after suffering a head injury in his team’s match against Pakistan on Saturday.

“We felt good going into this game, physically, but we made two or three mistakes and that cost us”, said Zywiczka. “We have been thinking more about the next game against France – that’s a game we have to win. We are near them in the rankings so it is an important game for us.”
