India recorded a stunning comeback and dominated Poland in the FIH Hockey 5s

Dominant India recorded a stunning return when they defeated Poland 6: 4 in a pulsating final and won the inaugural FIH Hockey 5s championship on Sunday. India, which led the table of five teams with three wins and one draw on the way to the final, ended its campaign with an unbeatable record.

Here it is worth mentioning that it was the second victory of India on this day against the same rivals, when three and a half hours earlier that day she defeated Poland 6: 2 in a league match with everyone. The Indians, who played their third game of the day, were stunned for a moment after Poland scored three unanswered goals in the first five minutes of the game over Mateusz Nowakowski (1st), Wojciech Rutkowski (5th) and Captain Robert Pawlak (5th). .

However, the Indians quickly regrouped since the initial shock, when Sanjay and Captain Gurinder Singh found a goal in the eighth and ninth minutes to go to half time at 2: 3. It was only a matter of time before the Indians found the best they knew when, after nice goals from the field by Dhami Boby Singh and the most prolific tournament scorer, Raheel Mohammed, they took the lead 4: 3.

Once they found their rhythm, the Indians against Poland could no longer be stopped because Raheel and Singh scored their second goal in the match to complete the formalities. Since Hockey 5s is played with only four players in the field and the goalkeeper, it brings a completely different dimension to the game. However, the Indian team took the challenge as they continued to raise the title emphatically.
