Until then, its good bye from us here. 

...

Join us right here on sportskeeda for all the live action from Rio and from the hockey event. 

...

Their finishing in front of goal will have to improve and they will have to figure a way of closing out games if they are to make any progress in the hockey event at Rio.

...

And they have under a day to plan a comeback as they face Argentina tomorrow.

...

India will have to go back to the drawing board again now and figure out just how to get rid of their age hold habit of conceding in the final moments of the game. 

...

And the Germans did just that today. They picked up perhaps the only chance they had in quarter 4 and turned a nothing play into a match winning one. 

...

They held the Germany at bay for most parts of the game. India clearly had the better chances in front of goal. But at the end of the day, putting the ball at the back of the net is all that matters.

...

Wild celebrations from Germany, a clear indication of just how difficult this game was for them. India was resolute in their approach to the game tonight.

...

Having played a wonderful quarter 3 and held fort for much of quarter 4, the missed chances in front of goal will surely haunt India.

...

India will be left wondering just what they did wrong. A lot of soul searching will go into this one.

...

India had done wonderfully well and thoroughly deserved a draw, but Germany showing just why they're Olympic champs - they pull a rabbit out of the hat again. 

...

Sreejesh is inconsolable and sits with his head in his hands. 

...

Terribly frustrating for the Indians, this. Dominating the scene throughout the 2nd and 3rd quarters but losing it at the death!

...

The Indians will however have be more clinical in the opposition D.

...

But India will take a lot of heart from the game. This really showed that they can go shoulder to shoulder with the big boys.

...

India's uncanny ability to concede in the final moments of the match has come back to haunt them again here. Unbelievable scenes here.

...

Sreejesh could not have prevented the ball from going in at the far post as the Germans had found space all of a sudden inside the Indian circle. 

...

India's coach cannot believe it and India have been done in with 3 seconds on the clock. 

...

Ruhr was right there in front of Sreejesh, blocking his view and comes up with a magical deflection to catch Sreejsh off guard with 3 seconds to go for the hooter.

...

It was a nothing ball from center field for Germany as the ball rolled onto Sreejesh's pads, deflected off his pads and then into the goal.

...

Game Over! India 1-2 Germany.

...

What a heartbreak!

...

3 second left. Germany have won it.

...

60' - With exactly 3 seconds left on the clock, Christopher Ruhr tucks it in to shatter Indian hearts!

Heart break for India. A move out of no where from Germany, from the right this time.

...

Goal - Germany!

...

60' - GOAL! India 1-2 Germany.

The Indian defense holds again to frustrate another German attack. Sardar Singh brings the ball again to huge cheers from the crowd.

...

The Indian defence has really been stubborn.

...

Its all Germany these past 5 min. India are soaking up the pressure. This is where India has conceded in the past, late in the match.

...

A strong sweeping move from Germany from the right with a threatening pass into center field but there's no one to meet it for Germany. India get away. 

...

57' - Haner is back on the pitch. Both sides with 11 men again.

...

Neither team is able to create a clear opening and both are having to rely on quick interceptions. Who will stand up and be a hero now.

...

...

Thats a game saving fend off from Sreejesh. That ball was heading into India's goal but for the Indian keeper's intervention.

...

A German attack comes out of no where from the right and Sreejesh makes a brilliant reflex save.

...

54' - 10-man Germany come tantalizingly close to find a goal completely against the run of play. Sreejesh to the rescue!

...

The German coach shakes his head in disappointment as his side is unable to make inroads.

...

Big chance squandered again by India in front of goal. There have been several today.
