After suffering a humiliating 2-5 defeat against Belgium in the Tokyo Olympics men's hockey semifinal, India will face Germany in the bronze medal play-off on Thursday.

Tokyo Olympics | Full Schedule | Sports News

Manpreet Singh & Co will need an error-free performance to secure an Olympic medal for India after 41 years when they take on Rio Games bronze medal winners. India's last of the eight Olympic golds came way back in the 1980 Moscow Games. And Germany are the most successful hockey nation in the Olympics after India with four gold medals.

World no.3 India played into the hands of world champions Belgium with their defence succumbing under relentless pressure from the Red Lions to concede a bulk of penalty corners throughout the match.

Going by rankings, there is hardly anything to differentiate between the two sides as India are currently on third place and Germany on fourth. But, Germany would be a tough nut to crack for the Indians. Having lost 1-3 against Australia in the semifinals here, the Germans would be determined to prove a point.

It will be a repeat of the bronze medal clash of the 2017 Hockey World League Finals. Back then, India beat Germany 2-1.
