Ireland Upset Form Book For Huge Win Against India At Hockey World Cup

Ireland Upset Form Book For Huge Win Against India At Hockey World Cup
By PJ Browne Updated

Ireland followed their win against the United States over the weekend with another huge victory at the Hockey World Cup.

The Green Machine defeated India 1-0, moving to six points at the top of Group B and, importantly, claiming a place in the quarter-finals.

An Anna O'Flanagan goal 12 minutes into the game was the difference between the sides at the Lee Valley Hockey Centre in London.

It was O'Flanagan's 64th international goal for Ireland.

Here's the goal.

Through some remarkably resilient defence, Ireland managed to upset the form book. Shirley McCay was the best player on the field for Ireland.

Ireland had already beaten the US 3-1 on Saturday evening.
