The Indian national hockey team reached the semifinals of the 2015 Hockey World League Final round on Thursday, 3 December, with a stunning 2-1 win over in-form Great Britain.
India, who had finished bottom of Group B in the league round of the tournament, took the lead courtesy of V R Raghunath through a penalty corner in the 2nd quarter of the game.
In the 3rd quarter, Talwinder Singh doubled India's lead with a stunning finish from a very tight angle, sparking scenes of jubilation in the stands at Raipur's Sardar Vallabhbhai International Hockey Stadium.
The British team came back strongly in the last quarter, and pulled a goal back in the dying minutes of the game through Richard Mantell. The Indian team, however, held on to pull off a famous victory, thus booking a place in the semis.
In the process, India also registered their first win over Great Britain in 35 years.
