China were clinical and never let their intensity drop. India took a long time to settle but it was too late as China scored twice. Perhaps the scoreline is too harsh on India but it is also a deserved win for China who put no foot wrong today. A hard loss for Janekke Schopman’s team to swallow. But they cannot wallow in their loss for too long. They need to pick themselves up and prepare for the bronze medal match on Saturday.

Hockey, women’s semi-final, India 0-2 China, Q4: India win another PC. The trap is not a good one but Udita does well to shield the ball and curl it into goal. It won’t stand. Your first strike at goal from a PC cannot be above the backboard if it is not a drag-flick. India wasting chances now.
Hockey, women’s semi-final, India 0-2 China, Q4: Salima Tete does well to win a PC right at the start of the quarter. India try out a variation. Deep to Neha who passes to Lalremsiami. The shot is saved well by the keeper.
