India will square up against hosts New Zealand in their first match of the second leg of the Four Nations Invitational Hockey Tournament on Wednesday.

In the first leg of the tournament, India got off to a good start with 6-0 win against Japan but lost 0-2 to Belgium in the following match. Winning 3-1 against hosts New Zealand, who had beaten Belgium 5-4 in their first match, put the Manpreet Singh-led Indian team in the final.

India topped the pool table with a total of nine goals, having conceded only three in the pool stage while Belgium scored ten goals but conceded six.

However, the ‘Men in Blue’ were beaten in the final by Belgium who scored two goals and conceded one. India were within touching distance of getting an equaliser but some great saves by the Belgian goalkeeper kept them at bay.

India will look to start the second leg on a rousing note to seize an early advantage in the tournament.
