...
Full Time! With that, we come to the end of the semifinal, as Argentina make it to the final with a 1-0 victory over India. Captain Manpreet Singh looks absolutely gutted, as he sits on the turf, looking on in disbelief. India have fought well in this match, but one goal was all it took to make the difference for Argentina, in the end. India, on the other hand, have the chance to fight for the bronze medal, on Sunday.
...
60 - All of Argentina's players are behind the ball, as India try to lay siege on their goal. However, with 10 seconds left, they get a free hit.
...
59 - Argentina play in a long ball, which Harmanpreet misses, as Paredes runs forward to an empty goal. Astonishingly, he puts it wide from very close range. That would have been game over for India.
...
57 - Akashdeep tries to dribble past Perlliat, but the Argentine puts in a brilliant last-minute tackle, to get hold of the ball.
...
56 - India are going for the Powerplay, as Karkera comes off.
...
55 - Harmanpreet soars up the left flank, passes it to Lalit, who goes to the byline inside the circle and smashes it in, but the pass is blocked.
...
54 - Manpreet gets a pass from Gurjant, and he weaves his way into the circle, but soon runs into a crowd of players.
...
52 - Uthappa plays in a cross across goal, Akashdeep gets a touch, but it hits Mandeep, and Argentina get a free hit.
...
51 - Chance! Rohidas plays in a cross, which ends up with Gurjant, who turns and shoots on the reverse, but the Argentine keeper palms it away to safety.
...
50 - India soar down the left flank, as Chinglensana passes to Akasdeep dribbles past two defenders and pulls the trigger, but it is saved.
...
47 - Manpreet plays it to Sunil, who plays a brilliant pass to Chinglensana inside the circle, but he goes down under some pressure. The umpire waves play on, but India review the decision. However, the decision is not reversed, and India lose their review.
...
46 - The fourth quarter starts in a similar manner, as Argentina keep possession of the ball, while the Indians chase shadows in the rain.
...
End of Q3! With that, we come to the end of the third quarter. India have sorely struggled here, and it looks difficult for them to make a headway into the Argentine defence. This makes for an exciting final quarter.
...
45 - India get a long corner, and Lalit crashes it into goal. However, his shot was from outside the circle, and it does not stand.
...
43 - India are struggling to make headway in these wet conditions. Neither are they being able to play their swift game, nor are they being able to play the aerial balls properly.
...
40 - Chinglensana cuts past three Argentine defenders and passes to Sunil, but the forward is cut out.
...
38 - Sunil deflects a long pass into the circle towards Mandeep, but the latter could not react fast enough for it.
...
36 - Rupinder slap-hits this one, but it is saved by the keeper.
...
35 - Rupinder lines it up, but it hits an Argentina player, and India get yet another PC. Argentina protest vehemnetly, but they have lost their review.
...
35 - Akashdeep intercepts, and soars into the circle, and earns a PC. The first PC for India in this game
...
33 - Manpreet tries to pierce the Argentine defence, but the ball is cut out inside the circle by Lopez.
...
32 - Harmanpreet catches a stick on the knee, as the umpire immediately stops play, while Harmanpreet hobbles around in pain. However, he gingerly carries on.
...
31 - Welcome back for the second half, as India bring on Suraj Karkera in goal, instead of Akash Chikte.
...
Half Time! With that, we come to the end of the first half, as Argentina go into the break with a 1-0 lead. They have dominated the proceedings, hogging possession of the ball, while India have tried to play on the counter. However, India's swift counter-attacks seem to have been foiled by different puddles in the middle of the pitch, which have slowed the pace of their passes down, and have allowed Argentina to get back on the ball.
