Hearty Congratulations to the women’s hockey team on winning the silver medal. Well, it was 20 years after India sailed into the finals as they beat China 1-0 in the semis and they were already assured of a silver medal.
When they locked horns with Japan in the finals, Japan was by far the best team tactically and strategically as they beat India 1-2 to clinch the gold medal in the final of the Asian Games 2018 which is being staged at Jakarta and Palembang.
Though Japan took a leap in the first quarter of an hour, India bounced back into the game in the second quarter with a terrific equaliser from Navneet. However, Japan’s Motomi Kawamura chipped in with a winning goal as they didn’t give any snippet of breathing space for India to come back into the game and India settled for silver.
