India draw 1-1 with Belgium in Champions Trophy


Press Trust of India Breda (Netherlands)
India conceded a late goal to settle for a 1-1 draw with Belgium in their penultimate round robin match of the Champions Trophy hockey tournament, here today.
India scored an early goal through a penalty corner conversion by Harmanpreet Singh (10th minute) but wilted under tremendous pressure from the Red Lions to concede a late goal that came from the stick of Loick Luypaert (59th minute).
India are still in with a chance of progressing to Sunday's final and will take on hosts Netherlands in their last round robin match on Saturday.
The Indians had earlier defeated arch-rivals Pakistan 4-0 and stunned Olympic champions Argentina 2-1 before slumping to a 2-3 defeat against defending and world champions Australia.
