CWG: Indian eves beat England 2-1 in hockey, aims to qualify for semis

 

Gold Coast

The Indian women’s hockey team beat England 2-1 at the ongoing 21st Commonwealth games here on Sunday. The Indian team which is eyeing to qualify in the semi-final match are now second on the points table behind England.

Navneet Kaur and Gurjit Kaur guided India in the 42nd and 48th minute after England captain Alexandra Danson had put her team ahead just 35 seconds into the game.

The Indian women’s hockey team had started poorly in the event by going down to lower-ranked Wales but has since recovered, beating Malaysia and now England.

“This is the first time we have beaten England, they are the Olympic champions so we are very happy,” India captain Rani Rampal said.

“It’s always a special moment and achievement when you beat the Olympic champions. We’ve had very little chance to compete against them, and today was our day. We had to grab the chances and work hard,” she added.

Navneet said that scoring against the Olympic champions is easily among the biggest moments of her career. “We lost to Wales so this match was important for us to win, to get to the semifinals,” she added.
