Highlights India vs Germany Men’s Hockey Bronze Medal Match Tokyo Olympics (IND 5-4 GER Full Time)

Tokyo: Hello and welcome to our hockey coverage of IND vs GER, highlights and Updates Tokyo Olympics Men’s Playoff Hockey Match highlights between India and Germany played at the Oi Stadium, North Pitch in Tokyo. This has been a comeback for the ages by the Indian team. With two goals down at one point, India have gone on to win the bronze medal match by beating Germany 5-4 here at the Tokyo Olympics. India turned the match on its head by scoring two very important goals in the third quarter that had placed them in a position of ascendency. The fourth quarter saw them defend their heart out, sometimes putting their body on the line and eventually holding on to the slender one-goal advantage after the Germans reduced the deficit to 5-4, giving them a fair chance of coming back into the match. Wasn’t to be. India created history by ending the 41-year wait for an Olympic medal. Earlier, the second quarter saw Germany score twice in a matter of minutes that saw India trailing 1-3, thanks to some poor defending. But the Men in Blue came back strongly in the last five minutes of the second quarter and scored twice to get them back on level terms (3-3) at half-time. India had conceded the early lead in the first quarter as Germany scored in the first few seconds of the match. India from there on played the catching up game while Germany created far more chances than the Men in Blue. Germans went into the second quarter with a 1-0 lead against India in the bronze medal match.Also Read - Neeraj Chopra, Tokyo Olympics 2020 Gold Medallist, Receives Special Gift From 2008 Beijing Winner Abhinav Bindra
