"We have been playing well and we need to maintain the game in the quarter final as well to see the medal...to see the colour of the medal," Harendra said after Saturday's match.
The Indian coach believes the tone of the tournament will change now that they have reached the knock-outs, and said the team has spent years preparing for this opportunity.
"I think we know who to play in the quarter final. The match will decide whether to win medal or we are far away from the medal," he added.
Speaking on the match against Canada, Singh said: "We had two targets for the match. One is to top the pool so that we can enter the quarter final. The second was to score 6-0 against Canada. I am happy that we topped the pool and disappointed that we could not finish the game 6-0."
