India suffered a major defeat in men’s hockey on the third day of the Tokyo Olympics. In the second match of Group A, Australia defeated the Indian team 7-1. The Indian team, which defeated New Zealand 3-2 in the first match, proved to be completely weak in this match.
The defense of the Indian team also looked very weak in this match. This is one of the embarrassing defeats in India’s Olympic history. India’s next group matches will now be with Spain, Argentina, Japan.
Australia had beaten Japan 5-3 in their first match.
The Indian defense performed very disappointingly in Sunday’s match. Australia’s swift attack could not be handled by the Indian defense. Dilpreet Singh scored only one goal for the Indian team.
