India and England were on an even keel for much of the match with India’s failure to be clinical in the D. But England rained down on India in the final minutes and the latter collapsed under the pressure. They conceded four goals in the final five minutes and the scoreline at the end of it stood at 6-0. This defeat means that the Indian women’s team end the Commonwealth Games 2018 at fourth place. (CWG 2018 Day 10 Live)

Hello and welcome to our coverage of the bronze medal match between India and England
India have started the match on an aggressive note, pressing the English defence more often than not. It has been a positive start from Rani Rampal and co.
India and England suffered heartbreaks in the semi-finals. India lost to Australia 1-0 after their defensive setup, which was watertight in the first half, was broken by Australia in the second. England got even closer than India in their semi-final against New Zealand with the match being decided on shootouts. India showed a lot of respect to the Australians in the semi-finals and the hosts somewhat overwhelmed them in the second half. It is quite possible that India would use a more positive route in this match. The last match between these two sides turned out to be an absolute thriller in which India showed oodles of character to come back from 1-0 down.
