IND V MAS HighlightsPosted July 1, 2015

India were the winners of the third quarter-final of the day, with two ripping penalty corner efforts from Jasjit Singh Kular helping his side fight back from 2-1 down to defeat Malaysia 3-2 at the FINTRO Hockey World League Semi-Finals in Antwerp. The result puts India into the competition semi-finals, where they will face the winner of this evening’s match between Belgium and France.

Hockey World League Final hosts India are now guaranteed a top four finish here in Antwerp, which means that all four of the teams that reach the competition semi-finals are now guaranteed a place in the HWL Final alongside Germany, Argentina, Netherlands and Canada following their top four finishes at the recent Argentina HWL Semi-Final in Buenos Aires.

As India have already qualified for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games by virtue of winning the 2014 Asian Games, a top three finish here in Antwerp will create an Olympic opening for the highest ranked of the fourth place finishers from two HWL Semi-Final events held in Argentina and Belgium.

India took an early lead in the contest when Satbir Singh tapped home from close range after some patient work from the ever-impressive Akashdeep Singh. However, the Malaysians hit back with two penalty corners either side of the quarter-time break, with Razie Rahim and Shahril Saabah both finding a way past Indian shot-stopper P.R. Sreejesh with excellent drag-flicks. However, a brilliant double from Jasjit Singh Kular swung the match back in India’s favour to seal a place in the competition final four.

Speaking after the game, double goal-scorer Jasjit Singh Kular said: “It was amazing. It was my first drag-flick goal in international hockey so it was amazing. Malaysia played really well, they are a really fit side and it was a tough game. We are really pumped up for the semi-final.”
