The Indian junior men’s hockey team went down 2-3 to Germany in a match that went down to the final minute on its Europe tour.


Yogember Rawat and Gurjot Singh scored for India on Tuesday.


The first quarter had plenty of action with both teams finding themselves with opportunities to take the lead through penalty corners, but remained goalless.

Five minutes into the second quarter, the Germans broke the deadlock with a field goal. India equalised through a penalty corner via defender Yogember to end the first half with the score reading 1-1.

India won another penalty corner a few minutes into the third quarter and forward Gurjot put his team in the lead. 

But Germany equalised just minutes later with a penalty corner.

The Germans were awarded a penalty corner in the final moments of the game and they capitalized on it to seal the game 3-2 just in the nick of time.

India will play their final match of the Europe tour against Germany in Breda, Netherlands on Wednesday.
