Breda (Netherlands), 22 July 2015: Indian boys faced second successive defeat when they went down fighting The Netherlands 1-2 after they lost to Belgium yesterday.

In an evenly fought match today, the Dutch colts made use of a 18th minute penalty stroke, converted by Bram van Groesen, to go up.

In the second half, the Indian attacks, led by Simranjeet Singh, Armaan Qureshi and skipper Harjeet Singh, managed to press hard.

In the 57th minute, the host team counter-attacked with their fast-paced moves and this time again Bram van Groesen sent the ball in for the second goal. However, their joy was short-lived as Indian forward Armaan Qureshi charged back with his speedy run and hit the ball hard into nets to reduce the margin by 1-2 in the 59th minute.

With the motivating goal, the Indian colts attacked with more aggression and fought for an equaliser. In the dying minutes, both the teams managed to earn penalty corners but failed to materialise

India U-21 team will now clash against England in their fifth league match on 24th July 2015 at 20:30 IST at Breda, The Netherlands.
