SANTIAGO (Chile), Dec.2, 2023
From our Sports Correspondent
Annu’s brace went in vain as India lost 2-3 to Belgium in a closely-contested Pool C Match to slump to their second consecutive defeat in the F.I.H. Junior World Cup here today.
Annu (47th, 51st minutes) struck twice in a span of four minutes from a penalty corner and a penalty stroke to draw level after Belgium raced to a 2-0 lead through goals from Noa Schreurs (5th) and France de Mot (42nd).
But it was not to be India’s day as Astrid Bonami scored the winner from a penalty stroke in the 52nd minute.
