India looks to make amends against Ireland

Goalkeeper Savita was brilliant versus England

The Indian women’s hockey team would be aiming to make amends when it takes on a lower-ranked Ireland in its second game of the World Cup, here on Thursday.

India had a bright chance to score an upset win against World no.2 England in its Pool B opener but settled for a 1-1 draw.

By virtue of its stunning 3-1 stunning over the USA, Ireland is currently leading Pool B just ahead of England and India.

The Indians, on the other hand, would be desperate to score their first win in the tournament.

Goalkeeper Savita was brilliant under the bar to deny England on numerous occasion.

The Indians did create more chances from open play against England and that counted as a positive for chief coach Marijne.

A win will brighten its knock-out chances ahead of its last fixture against USA on July 29.
