- May 31, 2023 21:25Full Time: India 9-1 Korea
India is through to the final. A thumping win over Korea as the Men in Blue continue to juggernaut their way to the trophy. A treat for the Indian fans in audience today. It was a tale of two halves, really. India was ahead by two goals after the first period but it had to fight for the lead. The second half saw a barrage of goals from the Men in Blue. Dhami Boby Singh led the way with a hat-trick. He is rightly awarded the Player of the match award.
India not awaits to know the opponent for the final. Malaysia and Pakistan will battle it out in the second semifinal for the right to fight for the Asia junior crown.
That’s it from our side. Thanks for tuning in.
