India go down 1-2 to Netherlands in final European Tour match
This tour is in preparations for the FIH Men's World Cup 2014, scheduled to be held at The Hague, Netherlands from May 31 to June 15.

Indian men's hockey team slumped to its third defeat on the trot as it lost 1-2 to the Netherlands in the final match of the European tour at the The Hague on Saturday.

This tour is in preparations for the FIH Men's World Cup 2014, scheduled to be held at The Hague, Netherlands from May 31 to June 15.

The Indians started off very well and they took the lead in the second minute of the match as Rupinder Pal Singh successfully converted a penalty corner.

The visiting team looked charged up after the early goal and maintained the 1-0 lead till the end of first half.

The Netherlands, however, equalised in the 46th minute with Micro Pruyser scoring through a penalty corner. The home side gained momentum and their confidence grew after the equaliser.

But the Indians gave a tough fight to the Netherlands only to concede a late goal with Tristan Alegra scoring the winning goal for the home side in the 67th minute.

Today's defeat was the third in as many international matches in the tour as the Indians had lost 1-2 against Belgium and 2-4 against the Netherlands on Friday.

The Sardar Singh-led side had beaten the Leiden Hockey Club 7-0 in the first build-up game at Oegstgeest before playing out a 3-3 draw against the HGC Hockey Club in the next game of the tour.
