Holland outplay India in Hamburg Masters opener

first_imgIndia started their campaign at the BDO Hamburg Masters hockey tournament on a disappointing note, losing 3-6 to world number three Holland at the Ulhenhoster hockey Club in Hamburg, Germany.Bob de Voogd (9th minute), Robbert Kemperman (17th), Jeroen Hertzburger (22nd), Klaas Vermeulen (34th), Mink ven der Weerden (46th) and Constantijn Jonker (60th Min) were the goal-scorers for the Dutch side, while the Indian marksmen were Dhananjay Mahadik (18th), Sandeep Singh (43rd) and Ravi Pal (52nd).India will next play world number two and Olympic champions Germany, who beat Japan 5-3 in another match on Friday.Against Holland, India started the encounter in a lethargic fashion, which resulted in numerous unforced errors in the deep defence.Except for Sardar Singh, who played his heart out, Indian defenders wore a sorry look as the Dutch caught them on the wrong footing with frequent position interchange and quick passes.The continuous pressure by the Dutch forwardline yielded result in the ninth minute when de Voogd scored in the ninth minute from a Verga cross.Eight minutes later, Kemperman encashed on a pass from a turnover in the Indian midfield to make it 2?0.India, however, reduced the margin in the next minute from their first short corner when captain Mahadik slotted the home to the Dutch goalkeeper’s left with a carpet flick.But Holland fired back in the 22nd and 34th minutes with goals from Hertzburger and Vermeulen to go into the breather with an impressive 4-1 lead.Eight minutes into the second half, India pulled another back when drag-flciker Sandeep Singh scored from their second penalty corner.advertisementBut India’s comeback hopes dashed when Mink ven der Weerden made it 5-2 in the 46th minute from Holland’s third penalty corner.Shortly after the goal, Tushar Khandker missed the target with a reverse flick off a Ravi Pal pass.Ravi Pal then scored in the 52nd minute to make it 5-3 and give India glimmer of a hope.But it was not to be India’s day as Holland completed their tally when Jonker scored after he was set up by Vermeulen in the 60th minute to pocket full three points from the high-scoring encounter.last_img read more
