Thailand restraint India to 5-0 (8/27/2018)
--s2h Team
Playing under hot and humid conditions, Indian girls struggled in the entire first half before striking a goal midway through in the third quarter. For the girls who played so far the last match of the days, which is late evening, when it was cold, at least not hot. Today, India-Thailand match was billed for the opener, and it told on India.

Despite being at top of table India, India finished the formality of winning today, with four more goals added in the fourth quarter.


Getting to play today, captain Rani Rampal proved her critics wrong, accounting for three of the four goals. She struck the first goal, which broke the goal jinx, in the 37th minute in a melee.

Ten minutes later, Rani added another after set up by hard working Nega Goyal on the left wing.

Lalremsiami and Neha Goyal on the left flank were unstoppable in the last quarter, who combined well with tireless Lilima Minz to set up others for goal. Monika in the 52nd minute, NavJot Kaur in the 55th minute posted a goal apiece.

Four minutes before the hooter, Rani struck her last goal after Nimita Toppo surged ahead and brought the ball into the net.

Quite often, Narueangram Alisa, the goalie, blocked some sure looking shots at goal.

But the talented goalie could not stop Rani striking a hattrick.
