India lose bronze medal match 1-2 to Britain

May 06, 2012 22:28 IST

Indian men's hockey team ended its London tour without a win as they lost the bronze medal match 1-2 to Great Britain in the four-nation test event ahead of the upcoming London Olympics.

It was India, who scored the first goal through in the minute but the hosts rallied to beat the visitors.

V Raghunath had put ahead in the first half through a brilliant field goal but James Tindall brought his side back in the match before the teams took break.

Rob Moore scored the goal for his side in the second half.

India had earlier lost 0-3 to Australia, 2-4 to hosts Great Britain and then 1-2 against reigning Olympic champions Germany.
