Japan beat India 2-0 in Women’s Asia Cup hockey

Muscat. Defending champions India suffered a 0-2 upset with Asian Games gold medalists Japan in Pool A in the second match of Pool A in the Women’s Asia Cup hockey tournament here on Sunday. Japan surprised the Indians with goals from Naga Yuri (2nd minute) and Saki Tanaka (42nd).

A slow start was costly for the Indian players as Japan took the lead in the second minute with a goal from Nagai Yuri. After trailing by a goal, the Indian players took an aggressive approach, getting two penalty corners in the first quarter but failed to convert both. Japan then strengthened its defense and the Indian failed to score even after creating several chances.

Japan then gave the Indians a complete four by scoring the second goal in the 42nd minute. The Indian team then played an aggressive game and again got two penalty corners but the players failed to convert both. Japan are now at the top of Pool A with the same number of wins in two matches, while India are in second place after registering a 9-0 win over Malaysia in their first match. India’s next pool match will be against Singapore on Monday. The top two teams from both the pools will qualify for the semi-finals of the tournament.
