Glasgow:  The Indian men’s hockey team put on a stunning show as they came from two goals down to beat New Zealand 3-2 in the semi-final of the 2014 Commonwealth Games at the National Hockey Centre here Saturday.

Goals from Simon Child and Nick Haig gave New Zealand a 2-0 lead but India came back strongly with strikes from Akashdeep Singh, Ramandeep Singh and Rupinder Pal Singh to book a place in the final.

It will be a repeat of the 2010 final as India will again face Australia here in Sunday’s title clash. Australia beat England 4-1 to seal its place in the final.
