India and Australia in action during the Champions Trophy final.

Indian men's hockey team lost their Champion Trophy final 1-3 to Australia via penalty shootout late on Friday night but fans and big stars around the world hailed their gutsy performance.

After the 60 minutes of regulation play remained goalless in the final, Australian goalkeeper Tyler Lovell denied S.K. Uthappa, S.V. Sunil and Surender Kumar in the penalty shoot-out to drive Australia to their 14th Champions Trophy title -- most by any side.

Harmanpreet Singh was the only scorer for India, while for Australia, Aran Zalewski, Daniel Beale, Simon Orchard succeeded. Indian goalkeeper P.R. Sreejesh could only deny Trent Mitton.
