For Indian hockey, Sunday's defeat to the Netherlands in the semi-final of FIH Women's Hockey Junior World Cup 2022 was like going back in time and reliving some painful moments again. A second 0-3 defeat against the same opponents at the same stage after nine years! And with that, India's bid to win their maiden Women's Hockey Junior World Cup was ended at Potchefstroom, South Africa.

But Indian girls can still redeem themselves with a win in the third-place play-off against their English counterparts, who were thrashed by Germany (8-0) in the second semis. In fact, India will be confident of beating England and claiming a second bronze medal. England's best performance in the tournaments were fourth-place finishes in 2009 and 2013.
