In its second Group B encounter, Indian Hockey team was at the receiving end of an extremely disappointing loss as it went down to Germany, losing 2 – 1.
The Indian team was at the receiving end of a last minute goal by Germany’s Christopher Ruhr, which tilted the scoreline in Germany’s favour. This after Inidian players were dictating the moves for most part of the game. After the high against Ireland, Indian fans were left disappointed after Indian men lost against Germany in the encounter at the Rio de Janiero.
Huge hopes were attached to the Indian team led by Goalkeeper Sreejesh. But, after the Indian team comprising of Leander Paes and Rohan Boppana lost in men’s doubles in tennis, today’s loss in hockey, due to the goal in the last few seconds, comes as bitter disappointment.
