India though held their nerves in the shootout to emerge winners.

Coming off their heartbreaking loss to Australia in a controversial semifinal, India showed the intent to wrap up their campaign with a win and earn a podium finish.

Salima Tete’s goal gave India the lead and they led 1-0 at half time, paving the way for an entertaining second half.

Neha Goyal almost doubled the lead after the break, but good defending by New Zealand prevented the Indians from consolidating their position.

New Zealand have had to do a lot of defending and they’ve done quite well to remain disciplined until that Tete’s goal.

It led to emotional scenes inside the stadium. Players were seen hugging one another and jumping in joy. It was the same team, which lost a bronze medal match in Tokyo Olympics as well.
