Jakarta: India lost 2-5 to Japan on their way out of the Asia Cup hockey tournament. India had drawn with Pakistan in Pool A yesterday.
Even if they win by a large margin against hosts Indonesia in the final, their chances of advancing are slim. Kozai Kawabe scored twice, while Ken Nagayoshi, Romy Oka and Koji Yamasaki each scored for Japan. Pawan Rajbhar and Uttam Singh scored for India.
