Chandigarh:

Star hockey player Gagan Ajit Singh today said the players will introspect and discuss with the coaches what went wrong in the Champions Trophy tournament and try to sort out the weaknesses ahead of the Olympic Games next year. "We will be sitting together soon and there will be an open discussion on what went wrong, especially when there were high hopes after our back-to-back wins," said Gagan. He said the team's tendency to concede goals in the dying minutes of the game was of topmost concern and would be discussed threadbare. "We have been doing well during the past few months but there are some areas where we need to improve upon. I am hopeful we will overcome our shortcomings and do well in the forthcoming Asia Cup," he said. Analysing the team's dismal performance at Amstelveen, he said, "The team's morale went very low after the shock defeat in the opening match. It was a setback especially since we had almost won the match." (PTI)
