#1

New Delhi: Indian colts thumped Belgium 2-1 in the final to clinch the 2016 Junior Hockey World Cup Title in Lucknow.

The home side dominated the match from the first whistle with Belgium hardly getting a glimpse of the Indian goal in the opening stages of the first half.

Harendra Singh's troops were duly rewarded for their attacking intent as a brilliant reverse hit from Gurjant Singh gave India the lead in the 9th minute itself.

The Belgian goalkeeper came down rushing from the goal to the edge of the box to thwart the Indian chance but Gurjant improvised and hit a brilliant strike from zero angle and the ball landed in the right hand top corner of the goal.

The Indian colts then doubled the lead in the first half itself with Simranjeet Singh getting on the scoresheet this time. Simaranjeet's shot from the edge of the box went inside the goal from underneath Van Doren's leg.

India got two penalty corners in the second half but failed to convert either of them.

Belgium pulled one back via a penalty cornerin the dying minutes of the game to make it a respectable score of 2-1.
