India vs Netherlands, FIH Hockey Pro League 2020 HIGHLIGHTS: Indian men's hockey team beat against world No.3 the Netherlands 3-3 (3-1) in penalty shootout in the second game of the Men's FIH Pro League at the Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneswar on Sunday. The second home game comes a day after India thrashed Netherlands 5-2 on their tournament debut. Here is the story of the match: The scoreline remained undisturbed after the first 15 minutes of the match at the Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneswar. Lalit Upadhyay had two golden opportunities but the man of the match of yesterday was guilty of fluffing the big chances. India even got a penalty corner but could not make it count. It rained goals in the last five minutes of the second quarter with Netherlands taking a commanding lead. It was Weerden who first put Netherlands in the lead in the 25th minute with a brilliant scoop into the goal. Lalit responded for India immediately to draw things level but the 27th minute saw Hertzberger and Kellerman scored in quick succession and the Netherlands take a 3-1 lead into half time. Netherlands maintained their stranglehold over India in the third quarter and the hosts were unable to bring the pace and cutting edge that they would have liked. India stormed back into the match in the final quarter with Mandeep Singh and Rupinder Pal Singh both scoring off a penalty corner each to help India draw with the Netherlands 3-3 at full time. In the penalty shootout, Vivek Prasad, Gurjant Singh and Akashdeep Singh scored for India while Harmanpreet Singh and Rupinder Pal Singh missed. For the Netherlands, no one but Mirco Pruijser scored.

India go into the match as part of the preparations for 2020 Tokyo Olympics. After the Netherlands, India will host world champions Belgium on February 8 and 9 followed by two more home ties against Australia on February 22 and 23.

Here is the story of India's debut in the FIH Pro League: Gurjant Singh scored within the first 30 seconds of the match to give India the lead and Rupinder Pal Singh added the second in the 11th minute before Jip Janssen halved the deficit in the 13th minute to bring the Netherlands into the mix. If the first quarter mostly belonged to India, the second belonged completely to the Netherlands with India hardly able to create anything of note. Jeroen Hertzberger scored a brilliant tap in in the 28th minute to level the proceedings at the Kalinga Stadium. Mandeep Singh scored for India early in the third quarter before Lalit Upadhyay added the fourth to restore India's two-goal cushion. Rupinder scored his second in the final quarter to seal the match for the home team.

"I want to say thank you to the crowd who came to cheer. There was some good work done by the forward lines. We have been doing a lot of hard work in the training sessions, so all credit goes to my team-mates and the coaches," Lalit Upadhyay said. Reflecting on his team's defeat, Netherlands captain Billy Bakker said: "I think we have to focus on our own game. We played one quarter from the four quarters pretty good, the other three we didn't get the level that we wanted to get. With a team like India, it's really tough to win here, so I think they deserved it today."
