India thrash Poland at Johannesburg

Happy news for India in Field Hockey.  At Johannersburg, In  2011 Men's Hockey Champions Challenge  India clouted  Poland 7-0 yesterday.    India will take on Pool B's fourth-placed Malaysia in the quarter-finals on Thursday. (01122011).  India and Belgium both finished with seven points after Belgium prevailed 2-1 over hosts South Africa, but Tuesday's comprehensive win gave India a much superior goal difference that clinched the top spot in Pool A.

For India, Tushar Khandekar and Yuvraj Walmiki scored two goals each.  India enjoyed complete domination against Poland, who have lost all their three preliminary league matches with huge margins.  Walmiki opened the scoring in the 19th minute when he deflected Manjeet Kulu’s long diagonal shot past the goalkeeper.Shivendra Singh then capitalised on a Danish Mujtaba pass for India’s second goal in the 23th minute.  At the other end, Poland were unlucky not to have scored two minutes later when Tomasz Gorny’s firm shot hit the post after beating the goalkeeper. Walmiki’s opportunistic 33rd-minute strike produced his second goal to give India a 3-0 lead at half-time and Manpreet Singh capitalised on SV Sunil’s pass in the 44th minute to continue the scoring spree in the second session. Birender Lakra slammed in a reverse drive in the 53rd minute before Khandekar scored a brace in the 55th and 70th minutes.

In the inaugural Champions Challenge tourney held at Kuala Lumpur in Dec 2001, India defeated South Africa in the finals to win the competition, thereby earning a spot in the  2002 Champions Trophy in Cologne, Germany.

Will India win again ?
