...
The final whistle blows to signal a Dutch victory! India 1-3 Netherlands
...
India's intensity is appreciable, but doesn't translate on the scoreboard.
...
...
Danish Mujtaba sends a pass from Raghunath wide of the Dutch posts
...
The Indian defense comes up wanting again as Roel Bovendeert sends one above Sreejesh's head and increases Netherland's lead to 2. 3-1 in favour of the Dutch
...
Talvinder in and he's making his presence felt as he attacks the Dutch post
...
...
And India convert! Chinglensana Singh puts India on the board!
...
Beautiful run by SV Sunil, misses the goal but earns a PC!
...
India go into the last quarter down by 2. 15 minutes to stage a comeback
...
...
India concede their 2nd goal! Caught the Indian defense napping and Marco Pruijser collects one!
...
Sardar with a superb pass to the flank but the subsequent pass to Akashdeep is high and that's India's 3rd chance gone begging!
...
...
...
And they score! Mink van der Veerden beats Sreejesh to put Netherlands 1-0!
...
Brilliant defense from India as Sreejesh slips and cant make it to the post! First PC of the game is Argentina's!
...
Akashdeep's botched his second shot on goal!!! Misses the pass from Manpreet!
...
...
They exchange shots on goal as the HT whistle blows.
...
Interesting stat - India have had 4 circle penetrations from the right flank, 2 from the left and 1 straight up the line
...
No goals this quarter either, but the Dutch are the more aggressive
...
2nd quarter underway
...
The Netherlands have had an astonishing 86% possession in India's half of the field while the Blues have returned the favour rather disproportionately, with just 14%
...
...
...
The Dutch retort with a charge but send the shot wide of the Indian goal
...
Ramandeep with a clear shot on goal but he nudges it gently instead of thrashing it into the back of the net! India will rue that!
...
India respond, with Danish Mujtaba trying to pierce the Dutch circle. Free hit given, no bother for the Dutch defense, they keep it out
...
The Dutch are on the attack early, pressuring the Indian defence eject the ball without any fuss
...
Kept out by Sreejesh
...
Barely a minute into it and the Dutch already have their first shot on goal
...
And the whistle blows to signal the commencement of the match!
...
Take a bow, VR Raghunath, for your 200th international cap!
...
After a hard fought draw against Germany, can India better themselves against the Netherlands, who are ranked number 2 in the world?
