Air India emerge national champs
Air India upset reigning champions Punjab 6- 2 to lift the 3rd Hockey India Senior Men National Championship 2013 played at the Major Dhyan Chand Polygrass Hockey Stadium in Pimpri, Pune yesterday.
Air India played to a plan using short passes to completely dominate the proceedings. Joga Singh passed to Sameer Dad who made no mistake to put the ball into the goal, in just two minutes after the start of the game.
Affan Yousuf found the mark with a superb back hand flick to take up Air India to a 2-0 lead.
