That’s it from us tonight! We will be back on June 1 with live coverage as the Indian men’s and women’s teams move to London, England for their final set of FIH Pro League matches against Germany and Great Britain. Goodnight!

FT IND 5-4 ARG: It could be said that India perhaps relaxed a bit after that third goal of Harmanpreet, but it was more than just the concentration lagging a bit. Argentina won that penalty corner and that injected a sense of confidence in them which saw the third and fourth goal being scored in quick succession. Then India ended up waking up once more and held on to get the much-needed win after one loss and two draws.

The positives from this match are the delightful open play that saw two field goals being scored along with the numerous chances that were created by the Indian attack.

Sukhjeet Singh is the Player of the Match after his solid performance in the Indian attack.

Q4 IND 5-4 ARG: GOAL FOR ARGENTINA! A brilliant high ball is sent from Della Torre to Martinez who slots it slightly high above Sreejesh and it’s game on with three minutes to go!

Q4 IND 5-3 ARG: GOAL FOR ARGENTINA! The South Americans win a penalty corner which is saved by Sreejesh, but Argentina keep the ball after the corner and then Tadeo Marcucci is in the correct position to tap it in as Sreejesh dives to save it in vain. An India review sees Argentina keep their third goal of the match.

Q4 IND 5-2 ARG: GOAL FOR INDIA! Sloppy defending from Argentina who are rushed into protecting the goal from the barrage of attacks from Hundal. The latter then gets pushed on the back and it’s yet another penalty stroke. Harmanpreet steps up once more to convert for his third goal of the match and his 12th goal of the 2023-24 Pro League season so far.

Q4 IND 4-2 ARG: GOAL FOR INDIA! A penalty corner won in the oddest of fashions as Rajkumar Pal sends the ball in to Harmanpreet. India are urged to take the corner quickly from the referee which is saved by Santiago, but a stick check from the Argentinian defender gives a penalty stroke to India. Harmanpreet steps up and sends Santiago the wrong way to give India a 2-goal cushion.

Q4 IND 3-2 ARG: The sun has now fully sent in Antwerp and there’s no sunshine that’s annoying the players in their eyes. 12 minutes left to go as the clock winds down on the mini-tournament in Belgium for India who are employing a high press to try and extend their lead.

End of Q3 IND 3-2 ARG: A little bit of exciting play from both India and Argentina as the former get bodies ahead from a battle won in the middle of the field with 30 seconds to go. A couple of chances as Sukhjeet dives to try and extend the lead, but Santiago stops it well in time and the hooter blows.

Q3 IND 3-2 ARG: Sreejesh finally gets a look in about 12 minutes after the quarter began and keeps the lead safe for India. Some good defending from India and they manage to clear the ball away after the long corner. Lalit tries to start a quick counter-attack, but the umpire has to review the jostling between Harmanpreet and Capurro. Argentina keep the referral, but get a free hit outside the circle.

Q3 IND 3-2 ARG: Sukhjeet makes a good tackle and gets the ball off his marker in the midfield. He sends it to Hundal and India have tons of space up ahead as Abhishek also rushes forward and receives the ball. Defenders rush him and one of them loses their stick, but India get a penalty corner. The corner then is shot straight by Harmanpreet at Santiago who saves it, but the rebound is also cleared quite well by Argentina.

Q3 IND 3-2 ARG: Wow! India begin the third quarter in a strong fashion with Lalit and Abhishek combining as the latter shoots quite powerfully towards Santiago who does just enough to save the shot on goal.

HT IND 3-2 ARG: A slim lead but India will be pleased with the way they have been responding to Argentina’s strategy and also how they have been taking charge of the game. While Pathak has not been truly tested, Jarmanpreet and Amit Rohidas are strong in the defense. Sukhjeet and Hundal have been quite good up front in creating those chances that India was desperate for from open play.

Q2, IND 3-2 ARG: GOAL FOR INDIA! Who else but Harmanpreet Singh! He stood tall and strong and sent it right into the path of Santiago, but a huge deflection helped it to go past the Argentinian goalkeeper for the lead once more.

Q2, IND 2-2 ARG: Brilliant anticipation from Hundal who gets the misplaced ball from Della Torre and has Sukhjeet on his left as he advanced to the goal. He doesn’t manage to get a shot on goal, but wins a penalty corner.

Q2, IND 2-2 ARG: GOAL FOR ARGENTINA! Amit Rohidas gets off very quickly off the first line for all the penalty corners, but unlike the previous three, he only gets a stick to it which allows for Argentina to open up and go around him. Keenan gets a touch to it and slots it beyond Pathak who had come quite far out to the right side.

Q2, IND 2-1 ARG: Argentina have been left a little flustered, but are slowly creeping back into the game. Manpreet gets a green card and is rather perplexed as to the reason why. Argentina win a penalty corner.

Q2, IND 2-1 ARG: GOAL FOR INDIA! What lovely teamwork right there from India. Sukhjeet gets the ball in close to the circle and passed it to Abhishek who sees Gurjant waiting in front of goal and all Gurjant has to do is tap it in with ease and India have the lead!

End of Q1, IND 1-1 ARG: A good 15 minutes that has shown the quality of both sides, but India will feel pleased with the way that Akashdeep and Hundal have been bringing the ball and the Argentinian players into their half so far.

Q1, IND 1-1 ARG: A penalty corner won by India and Nilakanta tries to make good on the rebound off the defender with quite a bit of open space, but the Argentinian goalkeeper sends it out.

Q1, IND 1-1 ARG: GOAL FOR INDIA! Fulton will be happy with the way India have responded after conceding the opening goal. India get a good attacking run forward and Araijeet Singh Hundal gets the ball to him, steadies himself and takes a turn before shooting through the Argentinian defender’s legs for the equaliser.

Q1, IND 0-1 ARG: GOAL FOR ARGENTINA! A good high ball from Della Torre to Monja who slots it in past Pathak from open play and the South Americans have the lead inside the first five minutes.

India vs Argentina: Lalit Kumar Upadhyay returns while Krishan Pathak starts in goal for India in the first quarter.

India vs Argentina, India team coach, Craig Fulton: The last game ended slightly debatably so looking to move on from that. Was a good performance yesterday, but in high-performance sport, you need to win in back-to-back games.

And we’re back for the men’s team fixture against Argentina.

The Indian men’s team will be hoping to get an outright win today after the last meeting of the two sides ended in a draw. Interestingly, if India do end up getting another draw today, they will become the side with the most draws in Pro League history.

We’ll be back later for the men’s team match against Argentina at 11PM IST. Stay tuned!

FT IND 0-3 ARG: Another Pro League match in Europe ends with India being unable to score a goal. So far, they’ve only scored one goal in their four European matches in the Pro League. Harendra Singh will feel a tad disappointed considering there were significant moments of play where India dominated the ball and controlled the tempo of play. But while they held their own against the world No 2 team, the lack of conversion on the few goal scoring opportunities they had is a worrying sign as they aim to stay up in the Pro League.

Q4, IND 0-3 ARG: India have started to fall back a little bit for fear of possibly conceding more goals. But this has impacted their ability to go on the attack, which Argentina are taking advantage of so far.

Q4, IND 0-3 ARG: GOAL FOR ARGENTINA! An incredibly quick penalty corner taken and this time, Granatto hits it straight past Savita into the goal for a 3-0 lead for Argentina. The Indian defence just stood still and watched the ball go past them.

End of Q3, IND 0-2 ARG: A much better display from India in the third quarter and despite the goal scored by Argentina, the play to win the penalty corner and the couple of shots on goal should provide some confidence for the final 15 minutes.

Q3, IND 0-2 ARG: A little bit of worry for the Indian team as Vaishnavi goes off the field for an injury. Argentina take another review for a penalty corner for a possible deflection off an Indian stick, but loses the review.

Q3, IND 0-2 ARG: Goal for Argentina! An interesting passage of play where Neha jostles for the ball with Campoy, but the Indian player fouls the Argentinian and Campoy takes the ball quickly. Neha protests, but Campoy surges forward and gets the ball past the Indian goalkeeper for the second goal. India take the review for the improperly taken foul, but the referee doesn’t see enough to overturn the decision.

Q3, IND 0-1 ARG: A brilliant opening passage for India who have the control of the ball majorly until Lalremsiami gets into the circle and gets blocked to win India a penalty corner.

HT IND 0-1 ARG: After the initial shock of conceding a goal within the first minute, India have slowly started to take the fight to higher-ranked Argentina. However, the latter have been quick on the counter-attack and had a flurry of penalty corners, but nothing came of it. But Deepika and Neha have had a few chances that will give confidence to the Indian team when they come back for the next two quarters.

Q2, IND 0-1 ARG: Finally a first penalty corner for India that is taken by Ishika, but the ball goes too high from Deepika.

Q2, IND 0-1 ARG: A relentless barrage of attacks from Argentina give them a bunch of penalty corners, but the Indian defense holds strong.

End of Q1, IND 0-1 ARG: A good passage of play from India who have seemed to switched on and were putting pressure on Argentina. But 10 seconds before the hooter was blown, Argentina got a shot towards Savita, but no goal.

Q1, IND 0-1 ARG: Oooooo!!! Good chance for India to equalise in the first quarter. A good counter-attack gets them to charge at an open goal, but the ball goes too wide for Deepika to take a shot.

Q1, IND 0-1 ARG: Another review, this time from Argentina, for a foot obstruction gives them the penalty corner. It’s not the best take from Argentina who then ask for another review because of another foot obstruction that was on the line, a possible penalty stroke. But the umpire rewards them with another penalty corner that comes of nothing and play continues.

Q1, IND 0-1 ARG: The blushes are saved for India as the referee called for a foul on Argentina as an Indian player apparently obstructed Granatto, but India take a review and the video referee sides with them.

Q1, IND 0-1 ARG: The goal for Argentina has now been credited to Di Santo who got the last touch on the ball, instead of Granatto despite the latter getting the most control on the ball.

Q1, IND 0-1 ARG: Sanghita gets a touch on Toccalino as Argentina continue to dominate in the early minutes of the first quarter. Ball to Argentina and they continue play.

Q1, IND 0-1 ARG: Goal for Argentina! The dust from the whistle being blown had barely settled before the Argentina attack strode forward and Granatto made a super turn before ramming it into goal for the lead.

India vs Argentina: India haven’t beaten Argentina in eight meetings with six losses and two draws. Lalremsiami and Mumtaz Khan start for the Indian women’s team.

India vs Argentina, Harendra Singh: The girls played very well yesterday and were unlucky to not get the win. Hopefully, we can be better in the second and third quarter and bring a little bit of Indian masala hockey today.

Hello and welcome to Scroll’s coverage of the 2023-24 FIH Pro League matches in Antwerp, Belgium.
