In the FIH Hockey 5s final, Indian men’s team beats Poland and emerge as champions. India, who had topped the five-team league standings with three wins and one draw en route final, ended their campaign with an unbeaten record. This was India’s second win of the day over the same opponents.
India had beaten Poland, who had finished second with two wins and as many losses, as 6-2 in their round-robin league match three and half hours earlier in the day. Playing their third match of the day, the Indians were stunned for a while after Poland pumped in three goals without reply in the first five minutes of play.
