India finishes 8th in Hockey World Cup

India completed their Hockey World Cup campaign in disappointing manner, when they lost to Argentina for 7-8th place play-off.

India was down 1:0 at half time but bounced back with a goal through penalty stroke. However, Argentina scored 3 goals in next 3 minutes finishing any chances of a bounce back from India.

India has dominated the mid-field through all the matches in Hockey World Cup but looked out of sorts after crossing 25-yards line. This game was no different and Indians lacked co-ordination and finishing touch.

India's only win in the tournament came against Pakistan in their World cup opener but failed to make a mark since then. 8th place is still an improvement from 11th in last world cup. However, this is not a consolation enough for the home crown who would have expected a better show from the Indian team.
