#IndiavsMalaysia: The Indian Men’s Hockey team will take on Malaysia in the Quarter Final match on Thursday. While India went down 1-3 to The Netherlands, Malaysia scored an astounding 5-1 win against China in their last Pool A match on Tuesday.
Other than beating China on Tuesday, Malaysia have tasted success against Korea 1-0 and have lost matches against Argentina (2-5) and England (3-7). But against India, they have often given a good contest.
At the 26th Sultan Azlan Shah Cup earlier this year, Malaysia dented India’s chances of entering the summit clash with a 1-0 win. India had to settle for the Bronze with England making the Final by the virtue of goal difference. The Malaysian outfit will draw confidence from that brave encounter ahead of their face-off with India tomorrow.
Top Goal Scorers of the Tournament
Akashdeep Singh is presently the third highest goal scorer in the tournament behind Argentina’s Gonzalo Peillat (11) and England’s Sam Ward (7). Akashdeep has scored five goals for the team with Harmanpreet Singh scoring three goals and Ramandeep Singh and Talwinder Singh scoring two each.
