Eight-time gold-medallists India finished last in London, failing to win a single match. “Hockey is a team game. So, we can’t blame any individual. We failed as a team. On behalf of the team, I would like to say sorry to all hockey lovers of the country for disappointing them,” Chetri was quoted as saying by PTI yesterday.
“The team had potential but we failed to give our best when it mattered. It is every athlete’s dream to play in the Olympics but all our efforts got wasted. We played to just 30-35 per cent of our potential,” he said.
“We didn’t click as a team. We committed the same mistakes match after match. We failed to score goals inspite of playing attacking hockey,” he added. —
