India booked their spot in the quarter finals of the Hockey World Cup 2018 after thrashing Canada 5-1 in their last Pool C game of the tournament. Goals from Harmanpreet Singh, Chinglensana Singh, Lalit Upadhyay (2) and Amit Rohidas were enough for the hosts to register what in the end was a routine win. Canada at one stage equalized to make things nervy for India but a four goal blitz in the last quarter saw them qualify easily enough. Canada are through to the crossovers along with Belgium who won their match 5-1 against South Africa earlier.

The ball goes inches wide as Mandeep goes on a mazy run.
India all over the place
India have been all over the place in Q3. They need to get their act together.
Just as we were saying , India have been hit with an equaliser. Van Son with the goal and the score is now 1-1. India need a Goal!!!!!!!!!!!
India need to be careful
As dominant as India have been the hosts have to be careful that they don’t succumb to a sucker punch. A draw is no good to India. They need to win.
Close for India
Chance for India the ball just flashes wide of the goal. Excellent build up play.
Q3 is Underway. India 1-0 ahead.
Half time and India still 1-0 up thanks to 13th minute strike from Harmanpreet Singh. If the result stays the same the hosts are through to the quarters.
India very nearly with a second
Akashdeep very nearly with the second goal for India. The Canadian goalie is up to the task and denies him with his feet.
Canada back to 11
After a green card to one of their players Canada are back to their full quota of players.
Canada coming into it
Canada in the last five minutes have picked up their game and have threatened India, mainly down India’s right. Nothing to trouble Sreejesh though. Yet!!!
All India so far
Canada looks like are still in the dressing room! It’s all been India so far. As things stand India are into the quarter-finals.
Q2 is underway
End of Q1
End of Q1 and India lead 1-0 courtesy Harmanpreet.
GOAL!!!!!!!!!!! India lead against Canada and it’s Harmanpreet with the goal from a Penalty Corner. What a strike.
Electrifying by Mandeep
Mandeep nearly with the opening goal!!!! India break on the counter and Mandeep beats two defenders but can’t get the goal.
Nearly for India!!!!
A nice diagonal pass finds Manpreet on the left and his centre is saved well by the Canadian Goalie.
Surendr doing well
Surender Kumar has been doing well on the right. His passing could be a big outlet for India. Canada staying compact in the opening stages.

What India need now!
India are now second in the table before their match against Canada. A win would take India directly into the quarterfinal while a draw or a defeat would mean India are into the crossover round.
Canada are also through unless they lose by a margin of more than 8 goals.
Belgium have beaten South Africa 5-1 in other match.
Here is our preview of the match between India and Canada.
In other match
Belgium are currently 4-1 up against South Africa and if the result stays the same India will not be knocked out whatever happens against Canada. India though will be looking to get a direct entry in the quarters.
