India vs France Preview
Hopes of title defence shattered, a demoralised India would look to put behind the disappointment quickly and get their acts together as they seek revenge against France in the bronze medal play-off match of the FIH Junior Men's Hockey World Cup here on Sunday.
Defending champions India's quest for a second consecutive Junior World Cup title ended after they suffered a 2-4 defeat at the hands of six-time winners Germany in the semifinal on Friday. Germany will meet Argentina in the summit clash, while the Indians will get an opportunity to avenge their 4-5 loss to France in their tournament opener.
But to finish on the podium, the Indian juniors will have to lift their game by leaps and bounds and make amends for their sloppy show against Germany.
