India take on the Great Britain in their second Pool B women's hockey match of the Rio 2016 Olympics on Monday. The Indian eves, led by Sushila Chanu, produced a remarkable performance in their opening game against Japan to eke out a 2-2 draw at the Olympic Hockey Centre.
Featuring in the Olympics after a wait of 36 years, the India women's hockey team are intent on producing an impressive show for themselves in Rio de Janeiro. They showed that fighting spirit in the match against the higher-ranked Japan as Sushila's side came back from two goals down to record the draw and win a point for themselves.
Rani Rampal and Lilima Minz were the scorers for India.
Everyone has been questioning how far the team would really go in the Olympics after inspirational skipper Ritu Rani was dropped from the squad unceremoniously. Nevertheless, with four group games left, we might find some answers as to whether Ritu's exclusion really felt consequential.
Great Britain, meanwhile, are coming into the game at the back of a 2-1 victory against Australia in their opening league game of the event. The London 2012 Olympics bronze medallists got the two goals of the match through Lily Owsley and Alex Danson.
