Favourites India produced an impressive performance to outclass Japan 5-1 in their opening campaign at the 10th edition of the men’ Asia Cup hockey tournament on Wednesday.

The Indians couldn’t have asked for a better start to the tournament as they showcased near perfect hockey, which was full of short one-two passes, quick turnovers and variations.

Goals by SV Sunil (3rd minute), Lalit Upadhyay (22nd), Ramandeep Singh (33rd) and Harmanpreet Singh (35th and 48th) gave India the Lead. Japan’s lone goal came through Kenji Kitazato’s stick in the 4th minute. Next up : The Indian team will next play hosts Bangladesh in their next Pool A match on Friday.
