    Congratulations to Indian Hockey team

    After ten years! India has won the Asia Cup Men's Hockey Tournament. Today in the final India defeated Malaysia 2-1. From the very beginning Manpreet Singh-led Indian team started playing attacking hockey. Within three minutes of the commencement of the match, Ramandeep Singh scored the first goal (a field goal). The second goal for India was scored by Lalit Upadhyay in the 29th minute.

    Later Malaysia reduced the margin by a field goal score by Shahril Saabah. But Indian defenders strongly defended to deny Malaysia any further chance.

    This is the third time India has won the Asia Cup (2003, 2007 and 2017).

    Congratulations Indian Hockey team for this memorable win! May God help you to continue this winning spree.

    Yes, it's a sweet victory after a long wait. Congratulations to the entire Indian Hockey Squad. many Indian Hockey fans still believe that India should have won at Dhaka in 1985 too.

    India's win at Dhaka is also sweet justice for some of the senior Indian players who 32 years back lost a match against Pakistan close to the present stadium at Dhaka. In the last 3 minutes of extra time of the tense India-Pakistan match ( one of the closely fought matches in Indian hockey history), a questionable goal was allowed against India by a Japanese umpire Yubuta.

    The umpire. Yubuta, was manhandled, he collapsed in the stadium, carried out on a stretcher to the hospital and was back at the evening dinner sipping his wine! A few months later, 6 Indian players were banned for life by International Hockey Federation. Two of them Romeo and Rajinder Junior never got their bans lifted. Some of the seniors' prayers have been answered.
