India squandered a 4-0 halftime lead to go down 6-4 to Korea in the opening match of the Sultan of Johor Cup at the Taman Daya Hockey Stadium in Johor Bahru this evening.

It was a remarkable comeback by the Koreans who are generally known for their strong mental strength, while India were left wondering what went wrong in the second half where they failed to find a single goal despite creating chances.

It may well have been over confidence by the Indian youngsters, but still to concede six goals after such a healthy lead goes on to show that the India players can play like champions in one minute and mediocre the very next.
