Indian women beat defending champions Japan 4-2 , set up title clash against China

The Japanese outfit, though, did not let go without a fight as Shiho Tsujii and Yui Ishibashi found the back of the net to throw the game and make it 2-3 at half-time. Shiho Tsuji opened Japan’s account in the 17th minute, and 11 minutes later a field goal from Yui Ishibashi left the home fans cheering.

With Japan threatening to make a comeback, India managed to cushion up the lead with Lalremsiami’s first goal of the tournament in the third quarter .

India entered the knockout stage of the tournament following wins over Singapore 10-0, China 4-1 and Malaysia 2-0 to top their pool, and on Thursday defeated Kazakhstan 7-1 in the quarter-final.

Gurjit Kaur is playing beautifully and already has find net 8 time in this tournament so far .
