Tokyo [Japan], August 3 (ANI): The Indian men's hockey team will face Germany in the Bronze medal play-off match on Thursday in the ongoing Tokyo Olympics.

It was a hat-trick by Alexander Hendrickx (19′, 49′, 53′), and goals by Loick Luyaert (2′) and John-John Dohmen (60′) that helped Belgium book a place in the final.
For India, Harmanpreet Singh (7′) and Mandeep Singh (9′) scored the two goals. India's hunt for a medal, however, will continue when they play the Bronze medal play-off match on Thursday.
In another semifinal, Australia defeated Germany 3-1 to reach the summit clash of the Tokyo Games. As a result, India will face Germany for third place in the mega sporting event. (ANI)
