Hockey World League Semi-Final hockey India malaysia ramandeep singh argentina london manpreet singh pakistan Roelant O

India crushed out of the Hockey World League semi-final losing to Malaysia 2-3 in the second quarter-final today.

However, if Malaysia at world number 14 secure a semifinal berth by upsetting India Thursday, their route to the World Cup is secured besides qualifying for the HWL Final Round in India from Dec 1-10 this year. Both Indian goals were scored by Ramandeep Singh, who later was guilty of missing a last-minute sitter as he tapped a ball out from the goalmouth.

Meanwhile, in other quarterfinals of the day, reigning Olympic champions Argentina will play Pakistan, the Netherlands will take on China and hosts England will square off against Canada.

Both Pool A matches were draws as China and Scotland could not be separated at 1-1, while South Korea's clash with Italy ended goalless.

Lola sealed the first victory for Spain in the tournament by converting a penalty corner five minutes later. The idea was to pass the ball around quickly, not allowing the Malaysians to settle. A minute later, Malaysia doubled their lead against the run of play as Tengku Tajuddin neatly deflected in from their fourth penalty corner. "I am also pleased with the way our defence stood up to the challenge especially the goalkeepers who were probably facing the Dutch side for the first time since they came into the senior squad", expressed Oltmans.

Stung by the reverses, India's first shy at the rival citadel came in the 24th minute when Sumit send a diagonal cross from left into the circle and Ramandeep sounded the boards with a fine deflection. India went all guns blazing in Q3 but Malaysia defended well and frustrated the Indian forward.

While for the Indian team a loss would be disastrous after such a convincing win in the pool stage and it will raise question marks over Coach Oltmans and his team's progress in the last one year.

India took off their goalkeeper to add a kicker-back and gain an extra striker.
