India vs Argentina Highlights, Women Hockey Semi-Final, Tokyo Olympics 2020:  The Indian women’s hockey team’s dream of winning a gold medal on their maiden entry into the knockout stages ended in a 1-2 defeat to Argentina in the semifinals at the Tokyo Olympics here on Wednesday. It looked like India’s fairy-tale run, that saw them reach the semifinals after losing their first three matches, will continue when drag-flicker Gurjit Kaur put them ahead in the second minute but Argentina’s skipper Maria Noel Barrionuevo scored a brace to help her team emerge 2-1 winners and reach the final. India will play Great Britain for the bronze medal on Friday. India sealed its spot in the semi-final after beating Australia by 1-0 while Argentina defeated Germany by 3-0 for their semi-final spot. This is the first time in history that the Indian Women’s hockey team has reached this level at the Olympics. The winning goal from the Indian side was scored by Gurjit Kaur. India also saved as many as eight penalty corners to register their win against the three-time Olympic champions. The Argentinian side have clinched the silver medal in 2000 Sydney Games and 2012 London Games.
