India eye clean sweep against France in second Hockey Test

New Delhi: The Indian men’s hockey team will be fully geared to take on hosts France in their second and last match of the series at Wattigies Sports Centre on Wednesday. The Sardar Singh-led team had earlier produced a perfect blend of aggression and defense under new coach Roelant Oltmans to claim a 2-0 win over France in their opening Test match at Le Touquet, thanks to Chinglensana Singh and SV Sunil strikes. Although France tried to stage a comeback in the last quarter, goalkeeper PR Sreejesh underpinned by able defenders fended off hosts’ counter-strikes and guarded the post brilliantly for India. India will next travel to Spain for a three-match series in the second leg of their European tour, which starts on Monday.
