Sreejesh saves penalty stroke, Indian men shock Olympic champions Belgium 5-4 in FIH Pro League

The
Indian
staff
was
down
1-3
with
just
eight
minutes
still left
in
the
match
but
built
it
3-3
to
pressure
a
penalty
shoot
out.
Sreejesh
foiled
an
try
from
Alexander
Hendrickx,
who
was
taking
his
third
PS,
when
the
shoot
out
was
locked
4-4
and
Akashdeep
Singh
located
the
web
to
make
it
5-4
for
the
Tokyo
Video games
bronze
medallists.

Sreejesh,
as
typical,
was
excellent
beneath
the
bar,
foiling
a
range
of
makes an attempt
from
the
hosts
during
the
match
but
his
two
will save
in
the
closing
quarter
proved
to
be
very important.
The
eventful
very first
quarter
finished
in
a
goalless
stalemate
with
Sreejesh
executing
a
great
occupation
beneath
the
bar,
earning
two
saves.

It
was
India
who
experienced
the
to start with
chance
to
open up
the
scoring
but
the two
the
small
corners
went
abegging
as
the
property
goalie
foiled
those people
attempts
with
his
rock
sound
defence.

Akashdeep
as well
fluffed
a
shot
near
the
goalpost
which
on
any
other
working day
he
would
have
flicked
within
the
article.
Nevertheless,
early
in
the
second
quarter,
India
discovered
the
net
when
Abhishek’s
shot
rebounded
off
the
custodian’s
leg
and
Shamsher
Singh
(18′)
tapped
the
superior
ball
into
the
net
after
it
came
off
the
put up.

Belgium
located
the
equaliser
by way of
Cedric
Charlier
(21′),
who
deflected
a
move
from
Nicolas
de
Kerpel
in
lightening
fast
time.
It
was
Arthur
van
Doren,
who
pushed
it
to
Kerpel
from
the
still left
flank.
Both of those
the
teams
got
a
penalty
corner
each
but
did
not
utilise.

The
hosts
broke
the
deadlock
in
the
3rd
quarter
with
Simon
Gougnard
(36′)
slotting
a
intense
strike
dwelling
after
currently being
fed
by
Florent
van
Aubel,
who
managed
the
higher
ball
nicely
to
thrust
it
towards
his
teammate.
Sreejesh
saved
India
from
much more
ignominy
when
he
designed
two
heroic
will save,
parrying
the
ball
absent
with
his
adhere,
stretched
fully
on
his
ideal.

De
Kerpel,
although,
last but not least
breached
the
defence
with
a
furious
strike
off
a
penalty
corner
to
make
it
3-1.
India
were being
offered
a
lifeline
in
the
match
when
Manpreet
Singh
gained
a
penalty
which
Harmanpreet
transformed
and
two
minutes
from
the
hooter,
Jarmanpreet
Singh
found
the
equaliser
via
a
shorter
corner.

India
opted
for
a
variation
as
Jugraj
allow
it
slip
in the direction of
Jarmanpreet
from
powering
his
back
after
faking
a
stroke,
and
the
latter
blasted
that
into
the
internet.
