Belgium vs. India - Women's Champion's Challenge 1 - Highlights

Two goals from birthday girl Emilie Sinia (28', 60') and further goals from captain Charlotte de Vos (20') and Louise Versavel (45'), saw Belgium dispatch with India 4-2 in the second match on the penultimate day of the Champions Challenge 1.

India responded through goals from Poonam Rani (25') and Monika Monika (25') meaning Belgium didn't have it all their own way, but the Red Panthers always looked the more likely to win this match.

"We were still hurting from the loss to Spain in the quarter finals", explained captain de Vos, "That made us come out and play really determined hockey. It wasn't a good performance, but it was an aggressive performance and that is what won it for us."

The result means that Belgium will now face Korea in the match for fifth place. "It is really important to us that we win that game," said de Vos. "It will be revenge for the pool game, which we felt we should have won and it will also be a confidence boost going into the World Cup."

India will play host nation Scotland in the match for seventh place, with India coach Neil Hawgood hoping his young charges can regain the composure they showed in their earlier game against the USA – a match they only just lost in the dying seconds of the game.
