Cologne:

India's failure to keep opposition at bay in the final moments cost them a vital point when they lost to Germany 2-3 in the six-nation Champions Trophy field hockey tournament today. After fighting back twice to equalise, India conceded a late goal to enable the world champions walk off with a victory. The Indians equalised twice through Gagan Ajit Singh and Jugraj Singh but the hosts had the last laugh when their captain Florian Kunz, who after an indifferent display in the early part of the match, smashed in the match-winner off a penalty corner in the 67th minute to deny India any point. Germany, who defeated Pakistan by an identical margin yesterday, now have six points after two wins while India have only one point after playing a 3-3 draw against the Netherlands.(PTI)
