India will next line up again against the formidable Germany on Aug 8 at 7.30pm IST. 

...

Nikkin has several strong moves from the left flank was Sardar Singh played a central role to good effect. Sreejesh pulled out a couple of saves to redeem his credentials are India's top custodian. 

...

India's penalty corner conversion was great. They will take a lot of heart from that department. Raghunath was our man-of-the match. He opened the scoring with a super drag-flick and held strong possession towards large parts of the game.

...

That's it for tonight. Join us for the live commentary of India's opener against Japan in the women's hockey event at 7:30pm, tomorrow.

...

A great result for India as they kick start their Rio campaign with an all important win. They would however, look to fine tune their finishing skills in front of goal. They look suspect as they always do, towards the end of quarter 3. That is another area of improvement as well.

...

Yet again, India have proved why their drag-flickers are envied all over the world. The duo of Rupinder Pal Singh and VR Raghunath will surely have all eyes on them during the course of the Men's hockey tournament in Rio 2016.

...

Returning to this tournament after a century, the Ireland Men's hockey team has plenty to be proud of after their display at the Olympic Hockey Centre in Rio de Janeiro.

...

All three Indian goals came from penalty corners today. Ireland had a strong defensive live up and fended off repeated India attacks from the left flank. This win will give India a shot in the arm for their Rio campaign as they look to bring home a medal from the hockey competition that has eluded them for so many years.

The Men in Blue have endured a flurry of Irish onslaughts in the final minutes to finish their opening fixture on a much-needed winning note. 

...

India were strong in the opening two quarters of the game but allowed Ireland to claw back into the game. The defense was exposed again to counter attacks and their defense against change-up penalty corner moves from the opposition remains suspect. 

...

India come away victorious after tense closing moments. 

...

A tense finish to this game at the Diadora Hockey complex.

...

FULL TIME! India 3-2 Ireland.

...

India win 3-2!

Sreejesh takes his helmet off and the hooter sounds.
