Walsh exudes confidence

India finished sixth ahead of Olympic champions Germany in World League Final here and its chief coach Terry Walsh said his wards’ performance in the eight-nation event gave the past masters the self-belief to take on any side in the world.

“We have learnt a lot from this tournament. This tournament gave us the self belief to play any team in the world, which not necessarily means a win,” Walsh said at the post-match press conference.

Placed 10th in the FIH rankings, the Indians had plenty of positives to take home from this tournament as the sixth place finish will definitely give a major boost to their world rankings which will be updated after this tournament.

Walsh was full of praise for his boys.  “To go without goals till the 59th minute shows that our defence is improving. (Goalkeeper) PR Sreejesh was brilliant. He made many saves for us.”
