FULL TIME India 1-1 South Korea

...

Q4 15' India 1-1 South Korea - Sardar trying to create a play but gets no support. Chinglesana plays the ball inside but the shot is defended well. India ask for a video referral on what they think is a foot foul. Seems rather a far fetched attempt. UNSUCCESSFUL. The game ends in a draw. FULL TIME

...

Q4 14' India 1-1 South Korea - Korea try a long pass into the Indian circle but it is not taken well by the forward. India again try a flashy pass but it does not result in anything. One minute remaining in the game.

...

Q4 12' India 1-1 South Korea - Ball hit across the Indian goal but it goes out of play and the last touch was from a South Korean stick. India start the game but lose the ball pretty soon. India have digressed from their initial game of possession. The midfield has been non-existent in the second half as a unit.

...

Q4 10' India 1-1 South Korea - Just about 5 minutes remaining in the game and Korea are playing long passes into the Indian circle to get a deflection and a goal. They lose the ball briefly but win in back. Korea attack but India defend well and get hold of the ball.

...

Q4 8' India 1-1 South Korea - India might have more shots but Korea have had more clear cut chances in the game. Another cross from Korea but referee deems the pass too dangerous. Indian defence has not been good today.

...

Q4 6' India 1-1 South Korea - India have had 15 shots on goal but only one goal. They have been wasteful to say the least. Surender attempts a pass down the line but it is misconstrued. Korea are stretching their opponents here by playing the ball back to their own defenders. Green card for Kumar and South Korea take advantage. Penalty Corner. Shot hits Rupinder and it is another Penalty Corner. Sreejesh SAVES again. India counter but Korea win it back.

...

Q4 4' India 1-1 South Korea - Korea's strategy is clear - use the width of the field and play short passes in India's circle. Meanwhile India get a long corner, Sardar takes it Chinglesana with a shot and BLOCKED. Should have scored there. India squandering another chance.

...

Q4 2' India 1-1 South Korea - The final quarter starts and India attack straight away. Lalit gets a shot but it is blocked and the Korean defender takes a hit. Korea straight away counter and attack. They are keeping a lot more possession in the second half.

...

We will be back with the final quarter in two minutes. 

...

Q3 15' India 1-1 South Korea - For all the hard work they have done in the third quarter, South Korea do not have a goal to show for it but India have not been able to take the lead after the  equaliser. India attack and they think they have a penalty corner. India Review the call. SUCCESSFUL. Penalty Corner to India. Ball injected and RUpinder Pal cannot hit the target. Good chance. quarter comes to an end. 

...

Q3 13' India 1-1 South Korea - Rupinder's hit raps Lee on his knuckles and that has to be painful. There are big gaps in the Indian midfield and Korea are trying hard to make decisive passes into their half. 

...

Q3 11' India 1-1 South Korea - Another shot and SAVED by Sreejesh. Korea are growing in confidence here and taking the game to India. They have forced India to adapt to their game and this is proving to be their advantage. 

...

Q3 9' India 1-1 South Korea - A lot of direct passing from India but Korea win the ball back and attack.SHOT and SAVED. Sreejesh is keeping India in this. 

...

Q3 7' India 1-1 South Korea - South Korea take the penalty corner and the ball has hit Surender. Another penalty corner, shot and missed. Poor shot from South Korea. Good defending from India. The game has become a more end to end business as both midfields playing forward passes. Korea, especially, using the width of the turf. 

...

Q3 5' India 1-1 South Korea - This goal has given India the necessary confidence and they are attacking more. Korea attack on the other end and win the penalty corner.

...

Q3 3' India 1-1 South Korea - Beautiful piece of dribbling from Nikkin and he cuts back to Lalit. GOOOALLLLLL India draw level. The response has come from the Indian team and they are back in the contest. Finally, the shackles have been broken. Relief for Oltmans. 

...

Q3 2' India 0-1 South Korea - The Men in Red start the game by trying to attack but the ball is played out. Korea, like the first half, are keeping their shape well and letting India have the ball in their own half and that does not seem to affect them. India are being forced to penetrate from the wings

...

We are back and Sardar Singh is giving his team a good talk before the start. Can India bounce back? Let's find out. 

...

HALF-TIME: India 0-1 South Korea

...

Q2 15' India 0-1 South Korea - Shot from India but it saved. Korea are seeing more of the ball at the end of the first half and this is a worrying sign for India. Oltmans will need to make some tactical changes in the half time. South Korea, on the other hand, will need to keep up the momentum. HALF TIME

...

Q2 12' India 0-1 South Korea - Around 4 minutes remain in the first half and India do not seem to have any answer for Korea's discipline. Korea are happy to not have the ball in unimportant areas. India have now stopped pressing with intensity. Oltmans has some work to do. 

...

Q2 10' India 0-1 South Korea - The lack of pace in the Indian midfield is causing them to leave a lot of space and the compactness is not there. South Korea are using the width of the turf really well. Beautiful scoop by Rupinder to Uthappa but he cannot control it. South Korea on the counter again and cross but India manage to get it out. India counter next with Affan but Korea defend well.

...

Q2 8' India 0-1 South Korea - You have to laud the way Korea have shaped up to stifle the Indian midfield. They have stopped the flow of passes and India are being forced to attempt outrageous moves. The ball with Korea now as they try to cross but India win the ball back and try to counter. Nothing doing, South Korea are too quick there and retrieve the ball. 

...

Q2 6' India 0-1 South Korea - South Korea get a penalty corner but India review the call. SUCCESSFUL. Good call by India and they have the ball back. They are being patient at the moment. Korea win the ball in their half and try to break on the counter. The pass is too long but India need to be careful. too many gaps being left in midfield.

...

Q2 4' India 0-1 South Korea -Oltmans is one worried man and India need to find an answer soon in this game. South Korea are looking quite comfortable at the moment and India are not doing anything to change that. A lot of passes being strung by India but none of them are decisive ones.

...

Q2 2' India 0-1 South Korea - The statistics show how Korea have played the game to their strengths and India's possession of 65% along with more than 10 circle entries mean nothing. India start the second quarter looking to make inroads in the Korean goal and their exuberance pays off as Lakra and Lalit induce an error. Penalty Corner to India. Sardar injects the ball and Rupinder Pal Singh takes a shot and DEFLECTED. Nearly there. 

...

The second quarter coming right up. 

...

Q1 15' India 0-1 South Korea - Another chance for South Korea and the Indian midfield has been caught sleeping again. How did Korea not score  there? First quarter comes to an end with a long corner for India followed by an attempt but it is over. Not the start India wanted.

...

Q1 13' India 0-1 South Korea - Oltmans will not be happy with that as India have been quite sloppy in their marking. India need a response. Around three minutes remain in the first quarter. Korea are seeing more of the ball than they were at the starting of the game. They have stretched India a lot. Though India have reached their circle, there has been lack of creativity.

...

Q1 11' India 0-1 South Korea - India have had a lot of possession but not a lot of clear cut chances. Korea's strategy seems to be working well as they are happy to defend. They are playing long passes to find chinks in India's armour and just their. KOREA take the LEAD. GOOOALLLLLL Really sloppy from India as Jungwoo makes no mistake.

...

Q1 9' India 0-0 South Korea - Finally Korea manage to keep possession for more than 30 seconds but that is how long it stays. Hang On. Risky pass by Jasjit in his own half and South Korea have a chance and NEARLY. Sreejesh will be furious with that. India attack right after and almost score. This is end to end play.

...

Q1 6' India 0-0 South Korea - The men in red know that India are going to control possession and are happy to sit back. Chinglesana dances in the Korean circle and cuts it back but the ball is cleared. Korea are yet to attack in this game. India attack again but are intercepted. 

...

Q1 4' India 0-0 South Korea - Sardar Singh has an excellent chemistry with Lakra and Chinglesana. This is going to be crucial today.  Talwinder breaks and SAVED by the Korean goalie, He shoots again and SAVED again. India should have taken the lead there. Great keeping from the Korean but India are up and running. Using the width of the field really well. 

...

Q1 2' India 0-0 South Korea - India start the game, hitting from right to left, they try to keep possession and play the ball amongst the back line. South Korea gain the ball briefly but India win it back. No Akashdeep today. South Korea play risky in their own half and concede a long corner. 

...

The teams are out on the pitch and we are ready to go!!!

...

Remember ladies and gentlemen, India play Pakistan tomorrow in the Champions Trophy and it promises to be an epic battle. 

...

We are around 25 minutes away from the start of the game and this one will be a closer contest than the one between India and Japan was a couple of days a go. Expect the Indian team to come hard nevertheless.

...

Hello friends and welcome to Sportskeeda's live coverage of the 2016 Men's Asian Champions Trophy. 

India will take on Korea in their second game of the Men’s Asian Hockey Championship. Riding on the back of a big win over Japan in their previous game, the Indians will look to further consolidate their claims as the best team in the tournament. Korea come into this game after losing to Pakistan yesterday and they will be looking to set their campaign back on track with a win today. Such a result would be quite an upset and would open the tournament up.

With the diktat loud and clear from the coach, each member of the squad will be keen to play his role to perfection. Of particular importance are P.R Sreejesh, Sardara Singh, Rupinder Pal Singh and Ramandeep Singh. These men are the bulwarks of this setup and their form will have a big impact on the team’s fortunes.

Sreejesh’s terrific goalkeeping, Sardara’s silken touch and angles, Ramandeep’s bursts into the opposition’s circle and Rupinder’s drag flicking continue to remain invaluable to India. In fact Rupinder made his intentions known in no uncertain terms by shooting in six penalty corners against Japan. He will be the man to watch out for against Korea as well.

All seems to be going well for the Indians and the only things that they should be worried about are complacency and the fact that they were not fully tested by Japan. Despite being slightly off colour in the third quarter of the previous game, their stupendous play in the other quarters gave them an easy victory. Korea will certainly offer a stiffer challenge and it would be interesting to see how the Indians respond.
