India vs Ireland, Hockey Women’s World Cup: The Indian women hockey team went down 1-0 to Ireland in their second Hockey Women’s World Cup match on Thursday. Ireland’s Ana O’Flanagan successfully converted their penalty in the first quarter using her stick to deflect the set-piece attempt into the top-right. Ireland then defended brilliantly to deny India of a chance of equalising. After settling for a 1-1 draw against World No. 2 and hosts England in their Pool B opener, the Indian hockey team failed to capitalise on their match against lower ranked Ireland, who qualified for the quarterfinals with the win against the Indian eves.
