Despite facing an under par Indonesia in their last group league game, the young side coached by Sardar Singh are to be commended for managing to score 16 goals in just one hour.

It was one more than India needed to put a final nail in Pakistan’s coffin when it comes to World Cup qualification hopes.

India and Pakistan both finished with four points each in Pool A behind Japan, but the defending champions qualified for the next round on a better goal difference (+1). But it was not easy sailing for India in the first two matches.

Already qualified for next year’s World Cup as hosts, India have fielded an inexperienced squad with up to 12 debutants for the tournament to gain much-needed experience.

The young boys didn’t have the best of starts as they drew 1-1 with Pakistan before losing 2-5 to Japan which pushed them to the brink of elimination.

But the Indians were in no mood to retreat without a fight even as they stood at the point of no return. They staged a dramatic turnaround to keep their title defense hopes alive.

India were also helped by Japan, who beat Pakistan 3-2 in their last match.

With their first goal achieved, the Indians would like to start afresh in the Super 4 stage, where Japan, South Korea and Malaysia are the other three teams. All teams will compete, with the top two qualifying for the final.

Revenge would be a priority for India after losing to the Japanese in the group stages.

But that would be easier said than done as the nimble-footed Japanese mainly rely on counterattacks to surprise their opponents, a ploy they used to perfection against India in their last outing.

One of the main areas of concern for India is the low percentage of penalty corner conversions as this team does not have a designated drag flicker like Rupinderpal Singh or Amit Rohidas. In fact, even against the Indonesian minnows, India failed to convert even half of the more than 20 short corners they won.

The Indian defence, led by Lakra, will need to be at their best to stop the fast Japanese, while the midfield will need to tie the team together to create chances up front.

Dipsan Tirkey, who scored five goals against Indonesia, was brilliant with conversions from penalty corners but that is a concern as India could only use nine of the 22 short corners they got in his last game.

Young Uttam Singh needs to be more precise with his finishing in the opposition circle but Pawan Rajbhar has been India’s star so far. He not only created chances with his strong runs but also scored goals.

SV veteran Sunil scored twice against Indonesia but age seems to have caught up with him as his electrifying runs down the flanks are missing from his game.

But to get the better of Japan, the Indians will need to deliver a more disciplined performance, which was lacking in the first meeting between the two teams. In another Super 4 game, South Korea will face Malaysia.
