We will bounce back against Spain: Hockey forward Sunil

Sant Cugat del Valles (Spain), Aug 11 (IANS) Following their shocking 1-4 loss to Spain, Indian hockey forward S.V. Sunil said they will bounce back in the second match of the three-game series against the European nation here on Wednesday.

India defeated World No.17 France 2-0 in a two-match series last week and will play No.11 Spain in three matches to complete their European tour.

“We did a few mistakes in the match against them but we are aware that we are a very strong team and we can bounce back,” Sunil, who scored the lone goal for India in Monday’s match, said on Tuesday.

“This loss will not deter us in our determination and for tomorrow the aim is to cash on the opportunities. For the next match the key will be our passes in the opponents D and our reaction time. We have to be quick in capitalising and not allow them easy possession of ball.”

Adding on the same, India chief coach Roelant Oltmans said: “While it was a tough match, we still had our opportunities to score. This is a learning for us and we will work on this for the next match. The team is aiming to turn it around as this is a very confident unit.”
