Spain 2 India 1

Spain finished second in the Tri-Nations Tournament defeating India 2-1. The match was tense as both wanted a win before flying into London for the Olympic Games. With this win, Spain winds up its Olympic preparation in Santander and now enjoys five days off before heading to London on July 24.

India desperate for a morale-boosting win did enjoy the exchanges in the first half but lacked finishing. Both teams seemed physically exhausted.

After the break, there was more intensity in the match with numerous interruptions and cards, but Spain took the lead through David Alegre as Miki Delàs extended the lead and in the end Raghunath closed the scoring with a consolation goal.

Re: Spain denies India victory

What is happening?....I hope this is just a bad run of luck. Two defeats before we reach London. Guys, keep your morale up.
You will do well at the Olympics. Just get your confidence up.

Re: Spain denies India victory

India will do well if they play well in defense, they have tendency to let in last minute goals. This is where Sardara's brilliance in midfield can take the pressure of the back line and feed the attack with his brilliant vision. If India get a result in their first game against the Dutch their confidence will be sky high for the next game, confidence can win you the games/tournaments, will keep my fingers crossed for India to resurrect their past glory and win a medal at the 2012 Olympic.
