Breda (Netherlands), 24 July 2015: India U-21 Men Team looking at adding a win against England witnessed exhilarating hockey here today at Breda, Netherlands as both the teams gave a tough time to each other. With the first half yielding a goal each for both the teams, the second half proved to be a dry run resulting in the match closing at 1-1 draw.

While India maintained a good attack the same was brilliantly complemented by the defence as they ensured that the opponents do not get away with an easy goal. It was England who finally broke the Indian defence in the 11th minute of the match as Luke Taylor smashed the ball into the nets ensuring that the penalty corner opportunity was well utilised.

Undeterred by the goal, Indians paid back the same minute as Nilakanta Sharma’s brilliant field goal which helped them equalise the game at 1-1. Post the initial goal by both the sides the rest of the session witnessed some great saves and the first half ended at 1-1 on the scoreboard.

The second half saw India up the ante of its attack as they successfully earned crucial penalty corners. But unfortunately for India they were unable to find the nets as the England defence cleared the danger on each occasion. Unable to add any further goals in the second half, the match ended with a 1-1 draw.
