was once again the start performer for India in the tournament (Source: Twitter) Top News India put up a dominating performance to beat Malaysia 4-1 in the bronze medal play off match on Sundayand finish at third position in the Four Nations Invitational Tournament in Melbourne The Indians managed to control the proceedings from start to finish scoring twice in the final quarter to post a much deserved victory Shrugging off Saturday’s disappointment India were looking to strike and consolidate early to avoid any pressure from the Malaysians They started off with several quick turnovers and passes before scoring as early as in the second minute of play Birendra Lakra picked up the ball near centre field and drove his shot diagonally into the circle The cross evaded everyone before falling to Akashdeep Singh lurking at the far post Akashdeep showed great awareness and superb skill to deflect the ball in and give India the lead India kept control throughout the quarter and had several more chances most notably with a flurry of four consecutive penalty corners right at the death but the Malaysians defended stoutly to go into the first break down by one goal In the second quarter India forward Affan Yousuf came closest to scoring a goal expertly steering past three Malaysian defenders before unleashing a reverse hit towards the goal However Malaysia’s goalkeeper Kumar Subramiam was up to the challenge as he put it away to deny India a goal Malaysia picked up the pace in the final minutes of the second quarter but despite several circle penetrations they failed to create any real chances The teams went into half time separated by the single goal scored by India The game opened up more in the third quarter as Malaysia chased the game India were happy to sit back and work on the counter Despite several circle penetrations neither team created any real opportunities almost till the end of the 3rd quarter In the final minute though VR Raghunath capitalised on a pair of PCs to convert one and extend India’s lead Malaysia hit back almost from the restart catching India’s defence unaware as Joel van Huizen scored a goal to take them into the final break 1-2 India kept up the pressure in the final quarter desperate not to repeat the mistakes from the against New Zealand They constantly pressed high and won several turnovers Akashdeep was at the thick of things first getting away a smart shot from inside the circle which was parried away by Kumar Subramiam Soon after though he again dribbled away from Malaysia’s defence to cut back a pass to Talwinder Singh whose first time chip deflection beat the goalkeeper to give India their third goal of the game With India in complete control and adamant to not let Malaysia get back into the match Rupinder Pal Singh netted the ball once again in the 58th minute through a PC Rupinder made no mistake in slotting the ball to the bottom right corner to eventually help India bag the bronze medal For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBefore time erodes memory and impressions fade away lets revisit what coach Harendra Singh said when he was asked about India’s chances of winning a week before the Junior World Cup – “Even if I don’t go to Lucknow and coach the team by remote India will win it” Well on Sunday in front of a packed Major Dhyan Chand Stadium India showed just why Harendra’s confidence on the team was sky high as they outclassed Belgium 2-1 in the final of the Junior Hockey World Cup India’s tactical sharpness caught the ambitious Belgians unawares as they lifted the coveted trophy after 15 years The Indian juniors played as if they had gulped a gallon of jet fuel History might soft-brush the result to coming generations when they read Belgium lost 1-2 But truth be told India could easily have scored four more A flying start with two goals in the first 22 minutes destroyed Belgium – Gurjant Singh and Simranjeet Singh scoring of super reverse hits Belgium’s reply was not only late it was an anti-climax Even the clock had stopped The pace in the first ten minutes was frenetic The pitch resembled a bunch of sprinters wearing blue holding hockey sticks Normally it’s the Belgians who like to set the pace But India after the initial short burst of energy by Belgium simply dominated and stunned the Red Lions Varun Kumar Parvinder Singh and Gurjant tested the Belgian defence It was obvious that the pace was a little too hot for Belgium The Indian team celebrates after winning the trophy for the second time PTI If there has been a weakness in this Indian side it has been the penalty corner conversions India had two in the first seven minutes and both weren’t hit cleanly At that moment one wondered if these were expensive mistakes But in the eighth minute came the move that stunned the Belgians A scoop from India’s deep defence saw it arc into the Belgian striking circle and the goalkeeper Loic van Doren who was brilliant in the semi-final ironically made a massive error an expensive one Charging out to deflect it away he simply pushed it into the path of Gurjant who neatly picked it up and without dropping pace turned into the striking circle and let loose a reverse hit that bisected van Doren and another defender to speed into goal Belgium was stunned From that moment onwards Belgium knew they couldn’t take chances in the midfield and leave any space Meanwhile in deep defence Harmanpreet Singh was imperious There has never been any doubt about his talent but against Belgium he showed why India’s defence is in good hands till the next Olympics He was calm composed and moved up on the right flank popping up in the Belgian striking circle on quite a few occasions If there was a flaw it was the penalty corner drill India’s dominance was so complete that they had eight circle entries in the first ten minutes Belgium did try and kill the pace and partly succeeded too Around the 15th minute of the first half there were enough rotations from both the sides The game was confined to the midfield as both teams moved men behind the ball Risks were eliminated Show-boating in terms of skills wasn’t seen All the flaws seen in the match against Australia had been ironed out In place was a team that was hell bent on playing professional hockey Before the final Harendra Singh had said “I learnt from mistakes in the 2005 World Cup and many other tournaments I tried to play attacking hockey even when I knew I could defend I realized that goals do look good but a victory by a goal or many goals gives you three points only” When Harjeet played slightly deeper Simranjeet Singh took his place The move in the 22nd minute came off Santa Singh Nilakanta Sharma who could have been on the scorers list pushed the ball for Simranjeet who from slightly inside the striking circle smashed in a reverse shot to beat Belgian goalkeeper van Doren At 2-0 Belgium had a mountain to climb And they had the skills too But India was not in a benevolent mood To the frustration of the Belgians India wasn’t willing to risk the match with any stupid moves Finally the Europeans had a penalty corner with five minutes left in the first half but a deflection from Gregory Stockbroekx missed the target The second half was more of a test for India than for Belgium India needed to show whether they had the steel to last 35 minutes in front of their home crowd Ten years back Harendra’s junior side had led 2-0 against Australia in the 2005 semi-final but then threw it away to eventually lose 2-3 This was a different Harendra who stood at the Major Dhyan Chand Stadium screaming at his players to keep composure and structure Harjeet who had a good outing didn’t venture up too much unless there was support Once the ball was lost he ran back shouldering the responsibility of putting men at the back Quentin van Lierde was offered an opportunity on a platter but he fumbled allowing the Indian goalkeeper Vikas Dahiya to clear the ball It was one of those rare moments when the Indian defence dozed off a bit Just as the match reached the halfway mark in the second half Gurjant got the golden opportunity of running away with the ball and only van Doren in front but he couldn’t control the ball India had two penalty corners taking their match tally to five but yet again unsurprisingly couldn’t create indirect conversions India’s attempt at closing the gates permanently wasn’t happening that easily Meanwhile Henri Raes blazed over from close; it was the closest Belgium would come to scoring from a field attempt As minutes ticked away India pulled down the shutters The restless crowd cheered on every second knowing that the Indians would hold on But like a good movie with a twist Belgium got a penalty corner with 24 seconds remaining on the clock By the time they took the penalty corner the clock had expired Yet they had a second consecutive penalty corner and this time Fabrice van Bockrijck’s flick hit the inside of the post before going in for a consolation goal Fifteen years ago Gagan Ajit Singh’s team lifted the World Cup in Hobart And now Harjeet Singh and his boys stood on the podium on a cold evening in Lucknow enjoying the feeling of finally embossing their names into hockey history Buenos Aires: Lionel Messi converted a penalty as Argentina laboured to a 1-0 win over Chile in a World Cup qualifier on Thursday that put them back in the automatic qualifying spots for next year’s finals in Russia Messi beat Claudio Bravo from the spot in the 16th

but worthy of at least a draw gave Argentina and early scare when they had the ball in net after a free kick from the left only for Jose Fuenzalida to be ruled offside Argentina took the lead when Brazilian referee Sandro Ricci ruled that Fuenzalida had pushed Di Maria as he chased a fine through ball from Javier Mascherano Messi sent Bravo the wrong way and buried the ball in the back of the net to a roar from a wildly passionate 60000 crowd at El Monumental Stringing moves together was difficult for both teams on a patchy pitch and Argentina were relieved when the final whistle went after withstanding intense pressure from the Copa America holders who are now sixth in the group on goal difference Argentina central defender Nicolas Otamendi should have scored from a Messi free kick before halftime but blasted a chance over the bar Messi was mostly kept quiet by the Chile defence but he had another chance to score from Marcos Rojo’s cross from the left only to see his effort go over the bar Midway through the second half Chile’s Alexis Sanchez hit the bar with a free kick and goalkeeper Sergio Romero had to get down sharply to prevent a subsequent cross from reaching substitute Nicolas Castillo On a disappointing night in front of goal for Chile Sanchez lobbed a free kick from a similar position high over the bar and Castillo slipped through the defence to meet a cross but steered his shot wide of the near post New Swansea City boss Paul Clement began their relegation battle at Crystal Palace as an observer in the stands yet ended the encounter barking out

it it gives people a real lift” Curtis told reporters “Paul came down and made a real positive contribution He came into dressing room before the game and in at halftime and at the end and played a part in the substitutes" "There’s nothing better for any player than a new manager in the stands looking at you” Swansea went to Selhurst Park bottom of the table and on the back of a four-game losing streak They had the joint worst defensive record in the league which had ultimately brought about the end Bob Bradley’s tenure last week Alfie Mawson’s header moments before the break had given Swansea the lead but Palace dominated the second half before Wilfred Zaha’s acrobatic volley in the 83rd minute drew them level Rangel was brought on after consultation between Curtis and Clement and he found the net in the 88th minute to lift the Swans off the foot of the table above Hull City “Paul has come into the club because he feels we can get out of trouble” added Curtis “He had a fantastic job at Bayern Munich working with some of the best players in the world but he wanted the challenge of coming to us I said to him that if I were him I’d have stayed where he was “I think people who have only seen our results would have been surprised by the way we played tonight especially in the first half when we were really good “And I think Paul would probably have been surprised himself at how well we played" The crucial talks in Kolkata on Tuesday between West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and leaders of the regional parties demanding a separate state of Gorkhaland
