Indian colts are world hockey champs!

After Germany, India are only the second team to win the Junior Hockey World Cup a few times.

"Extremely proud of our youngsters!"

Home favourites India produced a clinical performance to outclass maiden finalists Belgium 2-1 and clinched their second Hockey Junior World Cup title here on Sunday.

The Cup adds another jewel to India's golden hockey history, which boasts of eight Olympic titles and one World Cup at the senior level. For Belgium, this was their second biggest defeat of the year, after losing to Argentina 0-1 in the Rio Olympics final.

With brilliant wins against the strong opponents like Australia and Spain in the tournament, India started the final campaign with a mountain of confidence and dominated Belgium in all departments.

India took the lead through Gurjant Singh.

The hosts scored two beautifully crafted field goals in the first half through Gurjant Singh (8th minute) and Simranjeet Singh (22nd) while controlling the proceedings for better part of the game to emerge as deserving winners. While Germany was able to win the third spot, Australia failed to earn any medal for themselves, as they finished 4th.

Germany's Jan Schiffer was the first to score in the 11th minute with a goal deflected into the right of the net past keeper Matt Finn. In the semifinal, the Harjit Singh-led side defeated Australia 4-2 in penalty shootout to set up the summit clash against Belgium.
