Entering the final for the first time since their lone title win in 1994, Great Britain led all the way after securing an early lead in the eighth minute.

India scored their third goal of the match in the 48th minute when Mandeep Singh after tackling two New Zealand defenders at the baseline set-up Sunil with a brilliant square pass. Sunil was impressive as he beat defender Cory Bennett to the convert a sensational goal taking India's lead to a comfortable 3-0.

That was not all, Indian hockey team skipper Manpreet Singh and Talwinder Singh combined beautifully from the right flank, right at the death, and the latter's subtle shot on goal finally made the scoreline 4-0 in favour of India.

"No opponent can be taken lightly. We prepared well for the game, and we rated Japan - they have been able to score well at this tournament".

Only a minute into the game, India earned their first PC when forward SV Sunil found Kane Russell's foot in the circle, but Harmanpreet Singh's flick hit New Zealand's first rusher giving India another opportunity at a PC.

Malaysia have often given India a good contest.

Starting with a draw against Japan, the Malaysians have lost three successive matches, but only after missing scoring chances galore. Great Britain though will be motivated to give it their all and make their hard-earned opportunity count on the big night.

Trying to capitalise on the advantage in number, Australia took off their goalkeeper to bring in a kicker-back in the last minute of the third quarter, but the strikers could not get a touch on the long shots into the circle that rolled over the goal-line.

"We couldn't hold possession of the ball tonight and this made India even more of a threat", he said. Australia defeated India 4-0 in the 2016 final. Australia have a plus-eight goal difference to back the 10 points already against their name.

The Aussies struck back just a minute after that when Joshua Pollard slammed the ball home but David Goodfield took Great Britain to a steady 4-2 lead in the 43rd minute although Australian managed to narrow the deficit again through Dylan Wotherspoon's 48th minute strike.

New Zealand have inducted a lot of youngsters in the squad for this tournament.
