Breda (Netherlands): The Indian women's hockey team went down to The Netherlands 0-1 at the Volvo Invitational U-21 Tournament here on Sunday.

Carmen Wijsman broke the deadlock in the 33rd minute through a brilliant field goal, which did not give the Indian goalkeeper any chance.

The Indians maintained pressure on the hosts with their strikers often finding space. The defenders also kept the opponents attackers at bay.

Thanks to Wijsman's strike, The Netherlands led 1-0 at half time.

The second half saw a similar story as both teams continued to put pressure on each other.

While The Netherlands were looking to consolidate, the Indian eves were aiming at an equaliser, which never happened.
