The Indian junior women's team, led by Preeti Dubey, have had a strong showing in the tournament thus far having won three successive matches previously.

In the first match, the Indian team beat Ireland 4-1, before surpassing Great Britain 1-0 in their second match. They followed it up with a strong 2-0 win against hosts Belgium in their third match.

The team put up a strong attack against Canada as they created six PCs in the match but unfortunately could not convert, thanks to Canada's strong PC defending.

Canada too created three PCs during the course of the match but could not find a break through thus ending the match in a stalemate.

India will take on the Netherlands on 20 July.
