Dilpreet Singh (22′) and Harmanpreet Singh (60+) score to help India add a point from the draw in regulation time 

Dilpreet Singh celebrates goal.

Khel Today Bureau 
Rotterdam: An incredible fightback saw India win a point from a thrilling 2-2 draw against hosts Netherlands in the regulation time of the FIH Hockey Pro League match here on Saturday. It was goals by Dilpreet Singh (22′) and Harmanpreet Singh’s (60+) that helped India equalize on both occasions.
However, the hosts added on bonus points from a 4-1 shootout win with their experienced goalkeeper Pirmin Blaak keeping the Indian attackers at bay.

Sreejesh in action against Dutch.

Earlier in the game, Netherlands backed by a boisterous home crowd got off to a flying start creating two excellent shots on goal within two minutes of the start of the match. But luckily for India, both shots were off target. Around the 5th minute, India launched an ambitious attack through Hardik Singh who cut into the circle from the top, attempting to take a shot on goal but the Dutch goalie Pirmin Blaak cleared the ball.

Mandeep in action.

It was however, the Netherlands who fetched the first goal of the match when Derck de Vilder beat Indian defender Varun Kumar to find Tijmen Reyenga. With no defender near him, Reyenga (10’) took his time to take a successful shot past experienced India custodian Sreejesh to take a 1-0 lead.
Only seconds later, India fought back with Mandeep Singh creating a fine opportunity with a tactically earned PC. While Harmanpreet Singh’s first shot was blocked, and a retake was awarded, a goal by Mandeep Singh off a rebound from the dragflick in the second attempt was disallowed by the umpire on account of dangerous play. It continued to be an action-packed first quarter with India building on the intensity in their attack. This time, it was Abhishek challenging Blaak at the goal post, resulting in a PC but Jugraj Singh’s flick was well-defended well by Blaak.
With the Netherlands leading 1-0, Sreejesh’s inspired form was put to test once again in the second quarter when the hosts attacked the Indian post with back-to-back shots on goal through youngster Koen Bijen and Jorrit Croon, but an alert Sreejesh kept them at bay.
Meanwhile, Indian attackers broke the deadlock when a free-hit taken by Varun Kumar was cleverly passed to Dilpreet Singh, positioned perfectly inside the circle who just angled the deflection into the Netherlands’ post. With the scores levelled, India mounted pressure in the Dutch half but couldn’t score from it.
Seven minutes into the third quarter, Jasper Brinkman worked a good attack to help his team win a PC. But the dragflick was well defended by Sreejesh. A re-take awarded for dangerous play gave the hosts another chance at regaining the lead but a mix-up in the execution denied them a chance on goal. India too won a PC later in the third quarter through good stick work by Hardik but a poor execution of the set piece denied India a chance at taking the 2-1 lead.

With both teams tied at 1-1, the final quarter promised to be nail-biting with fast-paced game being played out. Netherlands eventually managed to strike in the 47th minute when a good assist by Stejin van Heijningen was picked up well by Koen Bijen who beat defender Surender Kumar to score a splendid field goal for the Dutch, taking the scoreline to 2-1. India, not the team to give up till the final hooter, came up with some exciting play as they pushed the ante in their attack. After some unsuccessful moves, and time quickly ticking away, Vivek Sagar Prasad created a much-needed chance for India with just two seconds left for the final hooter. The PC was perfectly executed with Harmanpreet, the highest goal-scorer of the Pro League, scoring on the buzzer to take the match into the shootout.

Please see attached images from the match. Also attached is the updated schedule.

On 19th June, Indian Men’s Hockey Team will take on Netherlands in the second of the double header at 2000 hrs IST in Rotterdam. The matches will be telecast Live on Star Sports First and Disney+ Hotstar.
