It was a very tight match when India met Korea on the third day of the 9th Asia Cup men’s hockey tournament that’s hosted in Ipoh, Malaysia right now.
Basically, it was because India just had to win the match, to avoid meeting Pakistan. And Korea, although already qualified for the World Cup at The Hague next year, was playing for ego. They always give their utmost in every game.
It was a very attacking game, and both teams defended well, especially India. Still, according to India team coach, Roelant Oltmans, it was a serious test for his boys and he would see where they should improve.
