Preview: Defending champions India will look to maintain their unbeaten run in the tournament and clinch the title when they take on arch-rivals Pakistan in the final of the of the Asian Champions Trophy on Sunday at the at the Sultan Qaboos Sports Complex in Muscat.
On Saturday, India had to work hard for a 3-2 victory over Asian Games gold medallist Japan in the semi-finals.
Field goals from Gurjant Singh and Dilpreet Singh and a set-piece penalty corner strike by Chinglensana helped India overcome the hard-working 2018 Asian Games champions, Japan.
After losing their preliminary league encounter to India 0-9, Japan had promised to give India a tough game if the teams met again in the tournament.
The Asiad gold medallists, who have inducted several young players for this tournament, lived up to their promise.After a goalless first quarter, Gurjant gave India the initial lead in the 19th minute by sending a fine reverse flick on target.
Japan equalised with a set-piece penalty corner attempt that saw Hirotaka Wakuri deflecting the penalty corner drive into the boards in the 22nd minute.
Finding Japan crowding their territory, India were not able to find solutions to breach the defence again until the 44th minute when Varun Kumar's penalty corner shot was deflected into the net by Chinglensana Singh.
Dilpreet increased the lead in the 55th minute by shooting on target in a crowded circle, but only to see Japan bounce back with another penalty corner conversion from Hirotaka Zendana in the next minute.
The Indian defence then held its ground for the last four minutes to secure entry into the final.Indian captain Manpreet Singh said he was pleased to be in the final.
"Japan are tough opponents and we knew we could not take them lightly," said Manpreet.
"We created many chances, but there was some missing and it put us under pressure."
"Our opponents in the final, Pakistan are a tough side. We have to produce our best game. We must take care of Pakistan's counter-attacks." Manpreet added.
