An entertaining India vs England clash ends goalless after both sides failed to make the most of their opportunities. England had a fantastic opportunity to win the match right at the end via a penalty corner, but they failed to find the back of the net.
The Indian men's hockey team have begun the third quarter on the front foot and also came extremely close to scoring the opener of the match, only to be denied by a brilliant England defence.
The second quarter was much more balanced in terms of the chances created by both teams as compared to the first quarter when England dominated it.
After an early period of domination by the England team, India seems to be finding their foothold in the match by creating chances of their own.
Even though England have controlled most of the possession and have created most of the chances with four penalty corners, they have failed to make the most of their opportunities.
Even though England got back-to-back penalty corners, they failed to make the most of it, with the Indian team defending brilliantly.
The India vs England match is underway with both teams looking to get a victory to boost their chances of progressing directly to the FIH Hockey World Cup 2023 quarter-finals.
Ahead of what promises to be an exciting match between India and England, both sides have revealed their line-ups.
