New Delhi:

The Indian hockey team left for Germany, for a four nation tournament beginning on July 16. It's been 24 years since the Indian hockey team brought an Olympic gold back home and Germany is perhaps the last chance for it to win a tournament before Athens. There has been a lot of debate amongst former players and experts after the team's dismal performance in Holland. In fact, India lost all it's games in the tournament and conceded 17 goalsa€"a disastrous campaign just weeks before the Athens Olympics. The team now needs to do is focus on tackling their weaknesses and developing their strengths. And they are hoping to do exactly that at the four-nation tournament in Dusseldorf.
