Heart Break for Indian hockey team in Rio Olympics


In hockey, it was a familiar scene where India failed to remain in control in the final moments. Christopher Ruhr deflected the ball from close range in the 60th minute as Germany earned a crucial win in a Pool B match that India deserved a point.

Niklas Wellen scored in the 18th minute to give the two-time defending champions the lead before Rupinder Pal Singh (23rd) brought India level with his third goal in two matches.

India women hockey team too fell short against Great Britain as they lost their second Pool B match 0-3. India conceded two quick goals in the second quarter, after holding the higher-ranked Great Britain 0-0 in the first quarter, which took the game away from them. And they conceded a third goal early in the third quarter. India women now have a draw and a loss to show for after two matches in their historic Olympic appearance in 36 years. India face Australia in their next match on Wednesday.
