India started off positively as within the first few minutes, Gurjant entered the opposition circle and sent a low cross close to the goal. Sukhjeet also made a connection but the ball failed to get into the goal. Germany soon got a goal from a penalty corner. India tried hard for an equaliser but ended the first quarter trailing 0-1.

India found the equaliser in the 21st minute as Jugraj took on a penalty corner won by Gurjant, and placed a low drag flick between the legs of Stadler. A minute later Abhishek put India ahead as the hosts caught Germany out with a long aerial ball that was missed by Peillat and Barry, leaving Abhishek with just Stadler to beat and he did that with ease.

Peillat responded just a minute later, picking the exact same spot as Grambusch earlier, bringing Germany level. India were back ahead inside 30 seconds though, as Sukhjeet received an aerial ball on the left side of the German circle and his cross was deflected in at the near post by Selvam Karthi. The goals kept flowing as India doubled their lead with Harmanpreet Singh scoring from his first penalty corner attempt of the game.

Germany halved their deficit inside a minute of the second half as an attack from the left led to a cross by Miltkau and Hellwig got in behind Jugraj to get a deflection that Pawan had no hope of reaching. With the pace of the game notably slowed down, neither team added another goal as Germany went into the final quarter, down a goal.

India made the perfect start to the final quarter. Jarmanpreet Singh’s pass found Selvam Karthi and he scored his second of the game with a smart deflection. India made it 6-3 in the 51st minute as a brilliant crossfield pass by Dilpreet found Sukhjeet all alone. He selflessly chose to pass the ball to Abhishek who rolled the ball into an empty goal. That goal was enough for India to seal an emphatic 6-3 win.
