The Indian team settled for a silver medal in its best ever performance in the prestigious tournament after going down fighting 1-3 to world champions Australia in a controversy-marred summit clash penalty shootout late last night.
And this is what Indian Prime Minister Mr. Modi and Other Legends has to say about performance of Indian Hockey Team.
Congrats to our Hockey Team for a spirited performance in Champions Trophy finals. Their effort has been brilliant. We're proud of the team.

Harmanpreet was the lonely warrior to score a goal for India in shoot out, Where Australia managed to score 3. So the Final Result was 3-1 India losing by 2 Goals. Although it was great to see Indian Players doing really well they gave their all but unfortunately it was tough luck for India.

This is just before the Rio Olympic so a very good sign for India. We hope that in Rio India do not settle for anything less than GOLD. We believe in Team India.
