South Korea checks India

Two days after thrashing Japan 10-2 in their opening match of the Asian Champions Trophy, the high-flying Indians were brought down to the ground by South Korea with a 1-1 draw in the second match. In fact, it was the Korean team that took the lead by scoring a goal as early as 10 minutes into the game through Junwoo Jeong.

Indians then struggled hard to find the equaliser but the Korean defenders thwarted the Indian attack with consummate ease. But finally the India got their name on the scoreboard with a goal in the game’s 30th minute when Lalit Upadhyay scored the crucial equaliser to save the point. India will next face arch-rivals Pakistan.
