At the moment two players hit their heads while attempting a move. Gorezlany from Argentina and an unidentified one from India. And that was the end of the first quarter! India goes on to win and qualify for the grand final!
Rules - part 4 (important)
The teams have 11 starters, with 11 starters and five reserves. And on the question of one of the main rules is penalty kicks. There is the penalty-corner, which is a short penalty. It is a free kick inside the attack, taken 10 meters from the goal, where only five defenders stand in front of the goal next to the goalkeeper. The penalty kick, on the other hand, is taken from 6.4 meters, with only the goalkeeper in front of the goal. Both penalties require one touch on the ball before the shot is taken.
Rules - part 3
Like in ice hockey, the players use sticks, which weigh between 350 and 700 grams. And the goalies are the only ones who can touch the ball with any part of their body.
Rules - part 2
The field is 91.40 meters long by 55 meters wide, and the goalposts are 2.14 meters high and 3.66 meters wide. In terms of time, there are four, with 15 minutes each.
Rules - part 1
Now with the game calmed down we can post some of the explanations of the rules: Since Field Hockey is not a sport with much fame, let's get down to some rules and measurements. It is a sport similar to soccer, being decided by goals and even cards.
Now Argentina has a free kick - I will explain more about the penalties in the game in a moment. But with Gorezlany, Argentina hit the mark and missed the chance for an equalizer!
Argentina did not release their starting lineup, but India did, who are fielding:
13' AND WE ALREADY HAVE A GOAL FOR INDIA!
And we have barely started on goal! On a free kick India opens the scoring early on with Gurjit!
We now begin the broadcast of the match between Argentina and India, in the semifinal of the Field Hockey tournament!
