Hockey – Lost Chances
Hopes broken :(, the Indian Hockey Team failed to qualify to the Beijing Olympics. This is the first time since 1928 that India did not qualify for the Olympics. Britain beat India 2-0. Britain scored both goals in the initial ten minutes – one of a smart pass and the other from a penalty corner. The defence of the British team was too good for the Indian attack. There were very few instances where India was close to scoring a goal except for a few penalty corners which were not converted.
I expected the match to be a lot more closer. It started at 2:30 am IST. I did make a sincere attempt to go back to sleep, but didnt get any. So, here I am back on my desk ‘blogging’.
