That's it from us here - this is Subhashish - next up is the biggie - India play Belgium at 1900 IST - do not miss that one and stay with Sportskeeda for all the updates
...
CIRCLE ENTRIES (24 FOR SA, 17 FOR CANADA), SHOTS ON GOAL (12 FOR SA, 8 FOR CANADA) - SOUTH AFRICA WERE BY FAR THE DOMINANT TEAM IN THE FIRST HALF - CANADA CAME TO LIFE AFTER GOING BEHIND, SCORED OFF A STROKE, AND SOUTH AFRICA FAILED TO GET A SECOND IN SPITE OF NEEDING A WIN AFTER BEING HAMMERED 0-5 BY INDIA IN THEIR OPENER

ONLY THE TOP 3 SIDES WILL ADVANCE TO THE KNOCKOUTS  - WILL GOAL DIFFERENCE BE THE DECIDER?? WE WILL HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE AS POOL C IS INTRIGUINGLY POISED
...
NO ONE IS GOING HOME YET - THAT IS THE GOOD NEWS - IF EITHER TEAM LOST TODAY - IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN CURTIANS FOR THE LOSER - A DRAW FAVOURS CANADA - BUT SOUTH AFRICA STILL HAVE A CHANCE TO ADVANCE
