Captain Rani Rampal scored the only goal for India in the 10th minute. It was a close contest for the first two quarters.

Despite a good performance in the second half, a slow opening shot on the score line against Great Britain ended. This was India’s third consecutive defeat in Pool A of the women’s hockey tournament.
