Indian team enters the quarters after 40 long years! The last time they saw QFs was in Madrid in 1978.
“We came here to win this game,” said captain Rani Rampal. She further added, “We came here to win this game. We all knew this was an important game and we scored in every opportunity that we got. We are preparing for the next match.”

Indian team managed to defend Italy’s counter-attacks, something which they rely the most on.

Along with Hockey India, our very own Sir Ravindra Jadeja took some time off his England tour to congratulate the Women.

DopeWope wishes you all the very best. Come out with flying colours.
