Following the semifinal loss against Argentina, the Indian women’s hockey team has a great opportunity to lift their spirits by securing their first-ever Olympic medal. On August 6, 7:00 AM IST, India will lock horns with Great Britain in the women’s hockey bronze medal match at the Tokyo Olympics 2020.
Earlier this week, the men in blue made the nation proud by beating Germany to grab the men’s hockey bronze medal. Now, the women in blue have a shot at clinching their own Olympic Bronze if they can beat their British counterparts.
India enters this match after recent wins against Australia, Ireland, and South Africa. On the other end, Great Britain is fresh off the victories over Spain, Ireland, South Africa, and India.
Therefore, the Navbharna will try to shake off their Pool A defeat at the hands of the same opponent they face on Friday. At the same time, Great Britain will hope to replicate their previous match against the Indian team. This, they’ll try to do after falling short in their own semifinal versus the Netherlands.
