Indian men’s hockey group today showed an extraordinary round of counter-attacking play as it won by defeating Germany 5-4 in the bronze medal play-offs at the Tokyo Olympics today. Indian men’s hockey group won an Olympic award following a void of 41 years. India’s last of the eight Olympic golds returned way in the 1980 Moscow Games.
The eight-time previous gold-champs, who fought a tragic droop over the most recent forty years, made the resurgence of the most recent few years in the most ideal manner conceivable with an Olympic medal.
India returned from a two-goal deficit to take a two-goal lead toward the finish of the second from last quarter. Germany decreased the deficit as in the q4 when it scored a goal from the penalty corner. Prior to the half-time, Team India was 1-3 down but came to get 3-3 level at the half-time break.
Goalscorers for India
Simranjeet Singh (seventeenth, 34th minutes) scored a brace, while Hardik Singh (27th), Harmanpreet Singh (29th) and Rupinder Pal Singh (31st) were the other goal scorers for India.
Germany’s gaols were scored by Timur Oruz (second), Niklas Wellen (24th), Benedikt Furk (25th) and Lukas Windfeder (48th).
There were tears and embraces on the field as the Indians drove by Manpreet Singh and trained by Australian Graham Reid enjoyed the notable second.
It is India’s third hockey bronze award throughout the entire existence of the Olympics.
The other two came in 1968 Mexico City and the 1972 Munich Games.
Executive Narendra Modi saluted the men’s hockey group after it won the bronze award in the Tokyo Olympics. He tweeted, “Historic! A day that will be embedded in the memory of each Indian.
