(G.N.S) dt. 3

In the second game of four-match tour of Europe, Indian men’s hockey team played out a 1-1 draw against Germany.

High on confidence after a dominating 6-1 win in the opening match, world No.4 India started on an attacking note against the hosts and earned themselves a penalty corner in the 4th minute, which was converted by defender Jarmanpreet with a classic slap shot.

Within the following two minutes, the hosts also bounced back and got their chance to score an equaliser with a PC but could not capitalise.

The visitors continued to be dominant in the second quarter, displaying better ball possession and creating opportunities with an intent to capitalise on the early lead.

However, the quarter ended with the hosts putting pressure on the Indian men with strong man-to-man tackle.

The hosts backed their tactical play with some quick forays into the striking circle, resulting in them earning back-to-back PCs.
It was in their second attempt when the experienced Martin Haner levelled the score 1-1 minutes ahead of the half-time break.
