Hockey bronze medal match: IND 1-0 PAK after 3rd quarter

It remains 1-0 at the GBK Hockey Field. However, Pakistan created quite a few dangerous opportunities in the third quarter, as they did in the second. Indian defence put under pressure. 

India can't be happy with this lead. They need to find another to avoid some late pressure. 

Another 15 minutes to go, what can the two teams come up with?

Hockey bronze medal match: IND 1-0 PAK

India have been able to maintain their one-goal lead but Pakistan stepped up and put pressure on the Indian defence in the second quarter. They had a couple of good chances to equalise but missed those opportunities by only close margins. 

This is very much shaping up like the Commonwealth Games opener where Pakistan clawed back from being 2-0 down to make it 2-2.

Hockey bronze medal match: IND 1-0 PAK after 1st quarter

Aakashdeep Singh's goal the difference between the two sides at the end of the first quarter. India have easily been the dominant side here.
