Buoyed by their resilient performance, the Women In Blue will next take on the USA at the Birsa Munda Hockey Stadium in Rourkela on Sunday, February 18. The win over the Aussies has no doubt shifted the momentum for Janneke Schopman's team, who had found the going tough at the tournament before that.

After suffering a 1-2 defeat in their first match against China, the Indian women’s hockey team went on to lose 1-3 to the Netherlands and 0-3 to Australia before beating the United States 3-1 in their final match of the Bhubaneswar leg.

In their first match of the Rourkela leg, India took the lead early in the game but China came back strongly to win the game 2-1. India then went on to lose 0-1 to the Netherlands.

But they have tasted blood now, and will look to continue in winning ways against the side they beat in the Bhubaneswar fixture too.

Speaking ahead of the match against Australia, captain Savita had said, “We lost the last encounter against Australia but we are focused on securing the win this time and we will give our one hundred percent. Australia plays a similar style to us, they are exceptional at transferring their balls and their finishing is top notch but we will aim to nullify this and win our one-on-one battles. We are as good as any team playing this tournament so we will give it our all when we step out on the field as these are crucial matches for us.”

The team sure matched Savita's words with actions on the field on Saturday, and will be looking to replicate them on Sunday.

Head-To-Head Record

The Indian women’s hockey team has beaten the United States of America on four out of the last six occasions that the two teams have met, including the 3-1 victory on February 9 during the Bhubaneswar leg of the FIH Hockey Pro League 2023-24.
