“It is hard to not be 100% emotionally invested”

India’s Lalremsiami scored a vital third goal for India against Canada to send the Savita Punia-led side to the semi-finals of the ongoing Commonwealth Games 2022 (CWG 2022) in Birmingham on Wednesday (3 August).

India needed a win to advance to the semi-finals and Lalremsiami scored in the fourth quarter to help her side defeat Canada 3-2. Salima Tete and Navneet Kaur scored the first goals for India while Brienne Stairs and Hannah Haughn restored the equalizer.

India meets Australia in the semi-finals in a repeat of the Tokyo Olympics quarter-finals where India defeated Australia.

Lalremsiami made it 2-2 and scored a rebound after Gurjit Kaur’s first penalty corner was saved in the defensive scuffle. The young Indian player was there, tapping the ball past the Canadian goalkeeper to give India the lead.
