20:04 (IST)20 JUN 2017

20:02 (IST)20 JUN 2017

IND will face the team that finishes third in POOL A in the Quarter Finals -  which seems to be a fight between Malaysia and China.

<Current Pool A standings>

20:00 (IST)20 JUN 2017

<POOL B standings as of now: >

19:58 (IST)20 JUN 2017

But that is overturned. 

IND lose their final pool game. Really good performance from the Netherlands. India will have a lot to do as they head back to the drawing board. 

So IND finish second in group B.

19:56 (IST)20 JUN 2017

The hooter goes but IND wants a referral.

Again for the five-metre infringement.

19:55 (IST)20 JUN 2017

60' - Last gasp from IND. But it's not going to be enough.

19:55 (IST)20 JUN 2017

59' - Brilliant from Chinglesana. Ball from Pardeep Mor was difficult but he controlled it and then gets it past two Dutch midfielders.

19:53 (IST)20 JUN 2017


Great shot towards the top corner and an equally brilliant save from van der VEN.

19:53 (IST)20 JUN 2017

57' -  AKASHDEEEP! Nearly. Great instinct but can't get it beyond the keeper who was off his line quick.

But he gets the rebound and looks to play it over the keeper but is fouled and IND get a PC!

19:51 (IST)20 JUN 2017

56' -  IND get a free hit in a dangerous area. But they have to go back.

19:50 (IST)20 JUN 2017

56' - The last few minutes and IND need a goal now.

19:49 (IST)20 JUN 2017

55' -  Sander Baart with the effort there. But the IND get that away with ease.

19:48 (IST)20 JUN 2017

55' - PC for NED!

Ball thrashed from the right from the Dutch and that seems to have come off the foot from Surender.

19:47 (IST)20 JUN 2017

54' -  IND on the charge. Mandeep on the right baseline but he can't past the three Dutch defenders.

And they clear away.

19:46 (IST)20 JUN 2017

53' -  WHAT A BALL!

Sumeet to Surender who produces a great ball. Two IND forwards dive forward but can't get the decisive touch. 

19:45 (IST)20 JUN 2017

51' -  IND on the charge but a brilliant tackle sees the ball turnover.

19:44 (IST)20 JUN 2017

50' -  SAVED!

That was travelling. Low and to the right of the keeper but he van der VEN gets down and produces and brilliant stick save.

19:43 (IST)20 JUN 2017

50' -  PC for IND!

And yellow card to the Dutchman. Push on the back of SV Sunil punished there.

19:42 (IST)20 JUN 2017

49' - Akashdeep down the left. Gets SV Sunil who puts the ball in and gets IND a long corner.

19:42 (IST)20 JUN 2017

48' - Surender seems to be miffed. But the decision doesn't cost IND!

19:41 (IST)20 JUN 2017

48' - NED on the charge and Van Dam finds Schuurman. He gets down the left but his ball from the left is too high.

19:40 (IST)20 JUN 2017

47' - Sander de Wejn steals the ball from Manpreet and then a back stick from Harjeet gives away another free hit.

19:38 (IST)20 JUN 2017

Final quarter underway and the Dutch gets us underway.

19:36 (IST)20 JUN 2017

And the third quarter comes to an end.

19:35 (IST)20 JUN 2017

45' -  Lifted by Akashdeep from the back but that has too much for Kothajit to get to.

19:35 (IST)20 JUN 2017

44' -  Poor from IND. Lost concentration and a mistrap results. NED have the ball back.

19:34 (IST)20 JUN 2017

And NED lose their referral. Pruijse wanted the ball on the foot but the video referee has given the ball to IND courtesy of an obstruction from the forward.

19:33 (IST)20 JUN 2017

43' - And a referral from the Dutch now as they think they feel have a case for a Penalty Corner.

19:32 (IST)20 JUN 2017

42' - Kemperman and De Wijn milking it in the middle.

Culminates in a save from Dahiya.

19:30 (IST)20 JUN 2017

40' -  SV Sunil on the run now. Down the right. Plays it from the right and into the middle.

But the Dutch are there at the back.

19:29 (IST)20 JUN 2017

39' -  IND on the charge from the left.

Ramandeep leads the charge and he finds Akashdeep. who looks for a foot. But can't.

19:28 (IST)20 JUN 2017

38' -  NED on the front foot again.

Shot in the reverse from Kellerman. Takes a deflection and the Dutch have a long corner.

19:27 (IST)20 JUN 2017

37' -  IND break and Mandeep is one on one with the goalkeeper. But he can't make his mind up and thrashes it straight at the keeper.

19:25 (IST)20 JUN 2017

35' - A great spell of possession from NED. 

19:24 (IST)20 JUN 2017

34' -  Surender Kumar is tested and he comes up trumps. But a long corner ensues.

19:24 (IST)20 JUN 2017

34' -  IND struggling to get past the halfway line here as NED really applying the pressure with a man's advantage.

19:23 (IST)20 JUN 2017

33' -  SAVED!

The numerical advantage is showing and Kemperman takes a shot. But Dahiya is equal to the task.

19:22 (IST)20 JUN 2017

32' -  Shot on the turn.

Comes from Kellerman who gets the ball Pruijser. But that is well wide.

19:21 (IST)20 JUN 2017

31 ' - Bakker thrashes it in but out for a long corner.

Another ball thrashed in but wide.

19:20 (IST)20 JUN 2017

31 ' - YELLOW CARD for Sardar Singh. 5 minute penalty now.

Lost the ball cheaply and then a clumsy tackle ensued.

19:19 (IST)20 JUN 2017

And we are off! Can INDIA come back! 30 minutes and you will have the answer.

19:18 (IST)20 JUN 2017

The players are back on the pitch and we are ready to rock and roll within a few minutes.

19:17 (IST)20 JUN 2017

India have had just four shots in the first half but that last goal from Akashdeep just showed how a moment's magic can turn the game on its head.

IND will like to go back in history as they were trailing the Dutch 2-0 in but came back within the space of 12 minutes with goals from Ramandeep Singh and Rupinder Pal Singh.

19:11 (IST)20 JUN 2017

That's it all over for the first half. 

IND trail NED 1-3 after the first 30 minutes.

19:10 (IST)20 JUN 2017

30' -  NEARLY!

IND nearly with the second in the space of three minutes. 

Thrashed in again from the right. And Ramandeep had take a good position at the back post. But he just had too much to do with one hand on the stick and having been beyond the far post.

19:08 (IST)20 JUN 2017


World Class from the forward. The ball is thrashed in from the right. Akashdeep's first touch had left him with his back to the goal. But he has the presence of mind to hit that between his legs and into the ground -  which lifted the ball over the rushing keeper.

19:06 (IST)20 JUN 2017

27' -  SAVED!

Akashdeep with the shot. On the reverse but the Dutch keeper is there.

19:05 (IST)20 JUN 2017

27' - SV Sunil gets a free hit. IND look to go forward.
