Tokyo: India men's hockey team succeeds in making up to the row by defeating Spain with 3-0 in the Tokyo Olympics games. Indian players move ahead with the determination to gain medals for the nation in Tokyo Olympics 2020.
Dragflicker Rupinder Pal Singh and Simranjeet Singh secured three goals in the men's encounter on Tuesday. This triumph has flown India ahead to the 2nd position in Pool A of the Tokyo Olympics Games.
The Indian men's hockey team was hit 1-7 by the Australians in their previous match, certainly due to their protective fragility. However, the team back-line provided an active display against Spain this point around.
Both Pal Singh and Simranjeet Singh had scored within ninety seconds of each other in the first quarter. The 2nd and 3rd quarters remained goalless while Spain strived to close prospects and the Indian champions stayed stable.
Pal Singh accompanied his penalty-stroke goal in the 15th minute with a penalty-corner transformation in the 51st.
India finally succeeded to maintain the clean covering and declare three goals. India will challenge Argentina next on Thursday
