Jakarta: Reigning Asian Cup hockey champions India will face Indonesia in the final match of the group stage on Wednesday.
India, who drew with Pakistan in the first match and lost to Japan in the second match, are currently third in the group stage after Japan and Pakistan. Thus, India has naturally lost the opportunity to qualify for the knockout round.
At the current stage, India should win the match against Indonesia by more goals. Also, Pakistan should lose the match against Japan. Only if these two happen will India get a knockout round chance.
Oman – South Korea, Malaysia – Bangladesh also play in other matches.
