play its biggest match in nearly two decades Roelant Oltmans’ side meets Belgium in the quarterfinals of the Rio Games and a win will mean India will enter the semifinals of the Olympics for the first time since the 1980 Moscow Games The closest the national team has come to reaching the last four was at the Sydney Olympics India have given a good account of themselves so far — barring the last league encounter against Canada — but Belgium are a completely different prospect They have been a thorn in India’s flesh in the last few tournaments playing defensively strong hockey which India has found extremely tough to deal with In the last few encounters Belgium have beaten India by the narrowest of margins – either 1-0 or 2-1 Their strategy has been simple – score an early goal and close the doors on India marking the forwards closely and not allowing an inch of extra space in the midfield Since their players are technically gifted Belgians make few errors But that doesn’t make them a defensive side The Red Lions are one of the most fluent attacking outfits At the Games so far they have scored 21 goals in the five group stage matches while conceded just two In the process they’ve eased past world champions Australia European giants Britain New Zealand and hosts Brazil Their only defeat came against an inspired New Zealand who have defied expectations themselves After years of showing promise the golden generation of Belgian hockey finally seems to be living up to its potential So India will have to bring their A game to the table and perhaps even more The Asian Games gold medallists have been playing some of the finest hockey in recent years but the defeat to Holland and draw against lowly Canada have hampered their momentum But more than the uninspiring performance against Canada the other day the bigger concern for coach Oltmans and rest of the team would have been the fitness of forward SV Sunil During one of his dashes to Canada’s half Sunil couldn’t apply brakes and slammed into the advertising board hurting his wrist in the process Later in the day he spent nearly two hours at a hospital undergoing scans His teammates waited nervously at the village for the reports Finally late on Friday night it was revealed that Sunil would be fit for the quarterfinal His presence will be crucial for India as he is one of the few with the ability to run and dodge past the sturdy Belgian defence and raid their ‘D’ India’s right flank looked considerably weakened against Canada which under-lined the team’s dependence on Sunil’s speedy runs on the wings Luckily for them he has been declared fully fit for the encounter One of the hallmarks of India’s performance has been the smart use of the wings and clean tackling The injection of pace from the flanks – with Sunil on one side and Devinder Walmiki and Nikkin Thimmaiah on the other – has troubled the likes of reigning Olympic champions Germany and even Netherlands But one gets a feeling that India’s fate would be decided on how well they are able to defend against an extremely sharp Belgian attack with Tom Boon Tanguy Cosyns and Felix Denayer being the key masterminds Defensive discipline would be the key for India They have been able to maintain great defensive shape in the group stage another new aspect of the team that was struggling in this area till a year ago But even though they have played well for majority of the match India have crumbled under pressure especially in the final quarter in every match they have played Goalkeeper PR Sreejesh has been put under excessive pressure and the way they’ve been playing Belgium are best placed to exploit this shortcoming of the Indian team The players looked jaded against Canada after playing high-intensity matches the entire week But the rest day on Saturday would have rejuvenated them For Oltmans will want his side to be at its best if India are bury the ghosts of its past and enter the Olympics semifinals for the first time in 36 years For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Related NewsThe humidity at the Kuantan Hockey Stadium was close to 88 percent Sardar Singh clutching his man of the match trophy was replying to a few questions from a Malaysian TV network Even though the match had been over some 45 minutes back sweat was pouring down his body his blue India shirt stuck to his chiseled frame Two quick answers and Sardar ran back for the team picture with the trophy Even though his teammates tried to push him to the front the former Indian captain politely refused preferring to stand at the back In some team pictures even during the Rio Olympics Sardar was usually hidden behind a few players It’s a change of character Of course Sardar was never one to show much emotion but this change signifies a shift in personality Watching him along with countless millions in the stadium and on TV was Terry Walsh his former coach and now Technical Director Malaysia “The change is visible” observed Walsh “All the stuff that he had gone through in the last six months would have an effect on him He’s human after all” File photo of Sardar Singh Getty Images It’s not difficult to raise an eyebrow as to why the focus was on Sardar after India won the Asian Champions Trophy beating Pakistan and he won the player-of-the-match trophy in the final “Exactly” says Walsh “Everything looks fine but a lot of stuff that players go through just gets papered over And it’s not just Sardar Even Sreejesh will feel the effects of captaincy Remember the expectations are huge and we sometimes sitting on the outside don’t realise it” It’s hard not to be cynical about yourself when you are going through a sexual harassment case; have lost captaincy for the Olympics; are nolonger a central midfield creator but a forward expected to score goals in the Olympics; and no more the spokesperson for the team In our environment when Sardar walks into a gathering or a hotel lobby it’s not too difficult to assess what people must be whispering amongst themselves It takes time to emerge from it The man or the player in question also takes a battering Before going to Kuantan Sardar only had one wish “I need to be supremely fit” he said “I want to play That’s the only thing I know and understand The rest I have to deal with” In the matches before the semis against Korea and the final against Pakistan Sardar looked like a shadow of his past He seemed slow passes going off the zone the fall back in defending exposing him against some faster oppositions And then in the group match against Malaysia Roelant Oltmans put him in a defending role virtually playing right back But with his skills not many players approach Sardar afraid of getting beaten on the dribble so space opened up for the former Indian captain and he played with some measure of confidence till the semis and the final happened “The expectation from him is huge” explains Terry “Everybody thinks he will keep playing at a high level But that’s not possible Even the media is quick in being critical if the player concerned is Sardar; also because he has been performing But that takes a major toll Without the captaincy he should play without any burdens” In the field when on a song Sardar appears unburdened He is fluid running past opponents as if they are whiffs of smoke gliding past out-stretched sticks his legendary vision picking up players on either flanks and the dribble that makes the ball seem like a puck on ice “We sometimes seem to forget that Sardar has been playing for more than a decade” says Oltmans India’s High-Performance Director who will be the new National Chief Coach from January 2017 on a new four-year contract “His has been an extraordinary journey Do you think we would have won the Asian Champions Trophy without that equaliser that he created in the semifinal That was a moment of sheer magic” In the semifinal India took the lead through a Talwinder Singh strike in the 15th minute but the Koreans came back strongly through Seo In-Woo in the 21st minute and then Yang Ji-Hun gave them the lead off a stroke in the 53rd With just seven minutes left in the match it seemed that Korea’s defence would hold out But with five minutes left Sardar who had moved up on the left flank surprisingly entered the Korean striking circle dribbled past three Koreans like running past inert statutes and ensured that his pass to Ramandeep got the equaliser for the match to go to a shoot-out Sardar was the first to take the shoot-out and unlike most did a deft dribble to the left and a back hand tap saw the ball in goal “I do understand what he has gone through” says Oltmans “But as a coach I know how to handle the situation I speak to the players individually and I also speak to him We have to understand he is not the same in age And that is one reason why I am reducing his time on the field so he is more effective He plays around six minutes per quarter And that could be shorter if the match is too intense” Oltmans says he normally reads in the media if something comes up about Sardar’s sexual harassment case “Otherwise I deal with the players on what is happening Keep them in the present and that they remain focused” Anuradha Solanki Sports Authority of India’s junior scientific officer a sports psychologist in normal terms for the last 23 years believes it is up to the player to ask for help “Yes you can sometimes see the sign that events outside hockey may have affected him and sometimes they don’t accept that But if the team believes and the coach thinks that sitting with a psychologist will help a player get past certain hurdles in his mind then of course he should ask for help” Anuradha thinks most players don’t accept changes happening in the way they are perceived in society at large “His positive self-image may have got a setback in the way Sardar looks at himself” says Anuradha “He comes from a humble background and sometimes such players go into their shells And performance does get affected It’s completely up to the coach of the team to be able to get into his head and the fact that he needs a little help in throwing off some baggage” Sardar’s performance at the Rio Olympics definitely dipped “It’s very difficult to change your position all of a sudden” says Terry “But I admire Oltmans as it was a tough decision” But the former Indian coach says it does affect a player and that’s when a psychologist can have a great effect “Everyone has their perception” says Terry “But after all these years Sardar must have expectations from himself Changing a player from right midfield to left midfield has substantial repercussions And he was playing as a forward” Oltmans is confident about Sardar as a player “I think he is eager to perform” the Dutchman says “But yes we can’t predict the future as such for any player Did anyone predict Rooney would struggle all of a sudden and that Ronaldo would also find it difficult to score goals” Walking back to the dressing room after the Champions Trophy win Sardar says he is looking forward to playing for at least two years “I don’t think too much anymore” he says “There will be bad and good days I have to be fit and at the moment if I can contribute to the team that would be great I am not looking beyond the 2018 World Cup” More than the skills here it’s the thermodynamics of the mind that Sardar battles Or as Terry says “Keep him relaxed allow him to play the game” Maybe here too Sardar’s hockey which is painless and his skills that still mesmerise will win the battle over his mind Meanwhile, has killed some 20, Opponents Ecuador, Following the agitation, before debuting as a producer in 2010 with “Dabangg”.
