With this result, India are through to the quarterfinals. They still have to play Malaysia in the final Pool D match, which takes place on April 5 (Tuesday) at 1900 hrs IST.

Player of the match: India goalkeeper Bichu Devi Kharibam. No surprise there. She had a near flawless game. Perhaps what will be remembered more than those saves - particularly her stop on the penalty stroke - is her celebration.

End of Q3: India 2-0 Germany: India has started to put pressure on Germany, creating more attacking chances. The only downside is that the Indians have been wasteful in those counter-attacks.

Q3: India 2-0 Germany: Mumtaz Khan breaks away on the left flank, but misplaces her pass between the two teammates available in the circle. Chances goes to waste.

Half-time: India 2-0 Germany. The Germans have been on the attack for a majority of the game, but have been wasteful in converting their penalty corners - failing to score from any of the six short corners. India did not get to attack much amidst the German onslaught, but made it count on the few occasions they found themselves in the German shooting circle, scoring in two of the three penalty corner routines.
