A well-fought game by the Indian girls comes to an end. Rio Bronze medalists, Germany proved to be too strong for the women in blue.

The first half was completely dominated by the Germans. Even though India made a decent comeback in the second half, they were unable to make the most of their scoring chances. A missed penalty corner, as well as a penalty shot, cost India the game.

Nevertheless, it was a great performance by the girls. We hope to see them getting back to winning ways soon!

Game statistics at the end of the first half

18:26 (IST)26 JUL 2021

Sharmila Devi has been phenomenal today. She's been running around and giving it her all for her country and her team. However, she desperately needs strong support from the team to make it all count.

India has been getting a lot of circle entries today, but they haven't been able to convert them into goals. The game is still not lost, Germany leads only by 1 goal.

Can things turn around in the 2nd half? Stay with us.

18:22 (IST)26 JUL 2021

End of the first half. Germany holds their 1-0 lead.

Some brilliant display of gameplay here from the Germans. They've held major possession throughout and have completely outplayed the Indians in all departments.

India, on the other hand, has defended well to concede only one goal given the kind of form Germany seems to be in.

Can the women in Blue turn things around in the 2nd half? We'll know on the other side of the break.
