That's it from us - this is Subhashish - do not go anywhere just yet - next up is India vs South Africa at 1900 IST
...
The Red Lions enjoyed 66% possession in the Canadian half but should have scored a few more - as it stands though the Olympic silver medalists earn full points from their opener. Seven PCs for the Belgians with none converted. Canada converted the second of the two PCs they earned
...
Sixteen shots on goal  and 33 circle penetrations for Belgium - 6 shots on goal and 9 circle entries for the Canadians (with the most effective ones in Q4)
...
Well, well, well, a cliffhanger was the last thing we expected as the Red Lions were all over the Canadians in the first half - and in the third quarter too - Shane McLeod's side failed to find a third goal in spite of dominating play and very nearly paid the price as Canada reduced the deficit - and very nearly found an equalizer!!!
