Indian fans will be more than happy with the goal disallowed in the final minutes of the third period. At that time, Abhishek had rushed the ball into the goal net. The harmony shown by the Indians in the goal area was tremendous. The umpires ruled that Abhishek committed a foul before hitting the ball into the net, against which India could not appeal. Even before that, India’s chances of appeal had ended.
India are second in the group due to this tie. England (5) has overtaken India (2) due to better goal difference. However, India have a chance to increase the goal difference by defeating Wales, who are weak in the group. India’s match will be played on January 19 at Bhubaneswar at 7 pm. Before that, England and Spain will be playing on the same day.
