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.
