 A FOUR-GOAL CUSHION FOR THE INDIANS BEFORE THEY HEAD INTO THE SECOND AND FINAL LEG OF THE QUALIFIERS TOMORROW.

THE USA HAD THE ASCENDANCY ALL THROUGH THE FIRST HALF BUT THE INDIANS FOUND THE MARK JUST BEFORE THE LONG BREAK AND RETURNED TO THE PITCH WITH RENEWED VIGOUR TO OUTRUN AND OUTMANOUVER THE USA GIRLS WITH FOUR QUICK GOALS

THE USA HAVE A GLIMMER OF HOPE AFTER GETTING ONE BACK THANKS TO A PENALTY STROKE BUT ARE THE AMERICANS GOOD ENOUGH TO CANCEL OUT INDIA'S FOUR-GOAL ADVANTAGE??
