 Five minutes to go and India still going all out to get the 10th goal...

Oct 25, 2016 - 19:57 (IST)

GOAL! Jasjit absolutely hammers it into the net. India 9-0 China. India completely in control of the match here. Jasjit Singh Kular gets India's 9th. Uthappa had two tries and then the ball fell free off the GK's pads for Kular standing on top of the circle and he whacked it into goal. India 9-0.

Ten minutes left in the match, Can India increase their tally and score more than the 10 they got against Japan?

India get their 3rd PC. They couldn't stop the ball cleanly. Rupinder's effort to get his 9th goal of the tournament wasted. China on the other hand fast on the counter.

The runaway 10-2 victory against Japan and the 3-2 win in yesterday's intense sub-continental contest against arch-rivals Pakistan has kept top-ranked India on course for the leading spot in the round-robin league, which could ensure them a favorable semifinal fixture.

But the draw against South Korea means India are two points behind Malaysia, who have gathered the maximum nine points from three outings.

Defending champions Pakistan are still on three points after suffering two losses, but will now go into two easy outings against Japan and China.

The victory over Pakistan has reinvigorated the Indian team that was stunned by the spirited show from South Korea the previous day, but team coach Roelant Oltmans says the boys need to improve on yesterday's fine show.

"We were much stronger than Pakistan yesterday, but we need to raise our game further. We can improve on this performance," says Oltmans.

Missing some key players who are recuperating from injuries, coach Oltmans says the return to competitive hockey after the post-Olympic break has provided opportunity to several youngsters to showcase their skills.

But he was not very happy with the errors committed in the defence that allowed space for Pakistani strikers to have cracks at the Indian goal.
