India outplayed Argentina to register a win

India defeated Argentina and registered a 2-1 win in the hockey Group B Rio 2016 Olympics encounter.

Men in blue converted the second penalty corner which came by the stick of Chinglensana. Indian defence should be appreciated for not only keping the danger way but ensured not to concede a penalty corner for the first three quarters.

India bounced back in the second quarter, and showed their ability to press and defended like they did in the first quarter.

In the third quarter, the men in blue doubled their lead, which came from the stick of Kothajit. In search of goals, Argentina came in aggressive mode and earned a penalty corner in the fourth quarter. Gonzalo, converted the penalty corner and became the only goal scorer of the match for Argentina.
