Rio 2016 Day 7: SV Sunil could miss India’s hockey quarter-finals due to injury

Rio Olympics: Uncertainty hovered over Indian team’s halfback SV Sunil’s participation in the quarter-finals after he sustained an injury during its last men’s hockey Pool B game against Canada at the Rio Olympics on Friday.

India were dealt a big blow when Sunil was stretchered off the pitch after he suffered an injury by crashing against the sign boards while pressing for an attack during the match against Canada.

Roelant Oltmans, who is the team’s high performance director and head coach, could not give a definitive answer when asked about the extent of Sunil’s injury.

“I don’t know. It’s too early to say. He needs to have a scan. He fell into the board and injured his writs,” Dutchman Oltmans said.

Skipper PR Sreejesh though sounded optimistic.

“What I saw it seemed okay to me and he can play in the next match,” Sreejesh, who also mans India’s goal, said.

India squandered a one-goal advantage as they allowed Canada to stage a fightback with a late strike and earn a 2-2 draw.
