India vs South Korea, Asian Games Hockey Semifinal Highlights: India came out all guns blazing in the first quarter and led 3-0 at the end of it. The second was a different story though. South Korea almost entirely turned the tables on them with two quick goals. They seemed to be playing India off the park but the 2014 champions converted a penalty corner to restore some daylight in the scoreline. They managed to see off the half and led 4-2 at half time. The third quarter was a cagey affair and just as it started looking like India were getting comfortable, South Korea scored from a penalty corner to make the score 4-3. Some poor defending from India led to this goal and the three-time champions then somehow saw off the Korean threat in the third quarter to set up a tense final 15 minutes. South Korea came out all guns blazing in the fourth quarter but the intensity of the match seem to have caught up with them soon enough. Abhishek scored towards the end of the quarter and thus sealed victory for India. They will now face either Japan or China in the final on Friday.

India vs South Korea Live Score: THAT'S IT! INDIA ARE THROUGH TO THE GOLD MEDAL MATCH!

India vs South Korea Live Score: No semifinal jitters this time. India have been largely clinical in this game against a tenacious Korean side. This certainly was their first real test in this tournament and they have finished it on top. A silver medal is assured now but surely, surely this team would be considering only gold as a mark of success. Apart from the glory of winning the tournament, there is automatic Olympic qualification to savour for the team that wins gold. India's opponent in the final will be decided in the next game between Japan and China which begins shortly. The final itself will be played on Friday. That's it from us here but you can still follow the rest of the action of the day from the Asian Games here. There is a lot of it, including a certain track and field athlete named Neeraj Chopra in the men's javelin final. You may have heard of him, the defending champion, the reigning Olympic and World champion and so on.

India vs South Korea Live Score: GOAL! India score out of the blue!

India vs South Korea Live Score: 54th min: Abhishek comes in and takes the loose ball, he moves into the D and smashes it past the goalkeeper with a reverse hit. That was some move from India. A lofted ball relieves the pressure for India. Mandeep chases after it, collects it and controls it brilliantly. However, thre is no one in the D and so his attempted square pass is intercepted. Abhishek comes storming in, takes the ball, enters D and unleashes a venemous hit. It looks like he caught Korea's Yang Jihun in the follow through and the latter is stretchered off.

India vs South Korea Live Score: Former captain Viren Rasquinha noting in the broadcast commentary that India seem to have stopped playing hockey in this quarter. Sreejesh had spoken about how important it is to ensure that the match situation doesn't change the way they play during the knockout matches. Well, India seem to have allowed the match to drift in this quarter and they are now in for a very uncomfortable last 15 mins of this match.

Oct 4, 2023 2:37 PM IST

India vs South Korea Live Score: GOAL! INDIA 4-3 KOREA!

India vs South Korea Live Score: 42nd min: Poor defending from India agianst a South Korean penalty corner and Korea get one goal back once again. Jung Man-Jae scores a hat-trick. India took too long to arrange themselves to defend this PC, there was practically no first runner and Jung scores.

India vs South Korea Live Score: Five mins to go in Q3

India vs South Korea Live Score: The Koreans had started on the front foot but seem to have lost steam. India pretty comfortable in position. This quarter in general has been extraordinarily quiet compared to what happened in the first two, which is something you would expect, of course.

Oct 4, 2023 2:30 PM IST

India vs South Korea Live Score: GOAL! India covert a PC!

India vs South Korea Live Score: 24th min: India 4-2 South Korea. A long ball into the Korean circle and it leads to Jarmanpreet winning a PC. Amit Rohidas this time with the drag flick and he nails, raps the board on the Korean keeper's left and India restore some daylight in the scoreline.

Oct 4, 2023 1:56 PM IST

India vs South Korea Live Score: 18 mins gone, India 3-1 Korea

India vs South Korea Live Score: Abhishek has been handed a green card and South Korea are handed a penalty corner seconds later. But India have appealed that. Well that is interesting. The video umpire actually told the on-field umpire that there is no reason to change his decision. But the on-field umpire actually says that he feels only a free hit is needed considering what he saw on the giant screen. What a decision that is and credit to the on-field umpire there. A good referral from India as well. But they are a player down for 2 minutes.

Oct 4, 2023 1:52 PM IST

India vs South Korea Live Score: PC for South Korea and GOAL!

India vs South Korea Live Score: 17th min: India 3-1 South Korea. The Koreans have converted their very first PC. They go for a variation and that catches out the Indian defence. They knew India will be focussing on the dangerous Jang Jong-Hyun and it is Jung Man-Jae who scored.

Oct 4, 2023 1:50 PM IST

India vs South Korea Live Score: India 3-0 South Korea in the first quarter

India vs South Korea Live Score: Matches between these two sides have been close a number of times in the recent past but so far, it has been anything but that. India have rarely not had the ball in this quarter and they have the scoreline to show for it.

Oct 4, 2023 1:47 PM IST

India vs South Korea Live Score: GOAL! Lalit scores India's third

India vs South Korea Live Score: 15th min: India 3-0 South Korea. Harmanpreet fires the ball at the Korean keeper's pads from the left, it falls to Sukhjeet who fails to control it. But that only leads to Lalit Upadhyay getting the ball nice and lose in front of an empty goal. He burries it.

Oct 4, 2023 1:45 PM IST

India vs South Korea Live Score: First PC for India…

India vs South Korea Live Score: 13 mins: ... and it is dragged high and wide and off target by Harmanpreet Singh. Korean possession has barely existed in this quarter.

Oct 4, 2023 1:41 PM IST

India vs South Korea Live Score: GOAL! Mandeep scores this time!

India vs South Korea Live Score: 11 mins: India 2-0 South Korea. That move is as smooth as butter. India continue to dominate possession, find Gurjant in the box. The shot was on for him and he knew it, so did the Korean defence, and so instead of going for it, he passes it to Mandeeep who puts it in off a deflection. It has been one-way traffic thus far. 12th goal of the tournament for Mandeep.

Oct 4, 2023 1:39 PM IST

India vs South Korea Live Score: BIG MISS!

India vs South Korea Live Score: 7 mins: Oh Mandeep Singh has skied a sitter! The ball is worked to him from the right baseline, he is almost in the centre of the circle, under no pressure right in front of goal and he drags it over. It remains India 1-0 South Korea.

Oct 4, 2023 1:35 PM IST

India vs South Korea Live Score: GOAL! Hardik Singh puts India ahead!

India vs South Korea Live Score: 5 mins: India 1-0 South Korea. India kept possession throughout the first five minutes, work it wonderfully into the circle. The first shot is saved but it comes to Hardik on the rebound, his shot ricochets off the foot of a Korean defender and goes in. It means that if it wasn't a goal, it would have been a penalty stroke.

Oct 4, 2023 1:33 PM IST

India vs South Korea Live Score: PUSHBACK!

India vs South Korea Live Score: Right, here we go then. India are in sky blue and white, Korea all in red with a black and white strip accross their chests.

India vs South Korea Live Score: Japan and China's incredible road to the knockouts

Japan may be the defending champions but they had to play a virtual quarterfinal against eight-time champions Pakistan. They ended up winning that match 3-2 and that marked the first time that Pakistan did not make it past the group stage of an Asian Games. China, on the other hand, played a virtual quarterfinal themselves. That was a frankly bonkers match Malaysia that finished in a 4-4 draw and put them through.

India vs South Korea Live Score: Sreejesh on the 2018 debacle

India vs South Korea Live Score: Sreejesh admitted that there are some regrets from what happened in that fateful match against Malaysia at the Gelora Bung Karno stadium in stadium in Jakarta at the 2018 Asiad. India, who were placed seven places above Malaysia at the time in the world rankings, ended up drawing 2-2 and then lost in the penalty shootout. “Throughout the tournament we played well but few errors in the semis cost us the spot in the final. That is the only thing we all regret. Every team has some positives and negatives, at the time we made some mistakes in the semis but we learnt from that and moved on. A lot of senior players who were part of that team are still in this team. We share our experiences with the younger players and we are preparing them for the big challenges coming ahead,” he said.

India vs South Korea Live Score: Head to head record

India vs South Korea Live Score: India may be nine places above Korea in the rankings but this fixture has not exactly been a walk in the park for them. Since 2013, the two teams have squared off 17 times, in which India have won eight, while six have ended in a draw. Korea have won three games.

Oct 4, 2023 12:37 PM IST

India vs South Korea Live Score: Hello there!

India vs South Korea Live Score: Indian hockey fans were resigned to the fact that their beloved men's team may never really be consistent winners of big tournaments after they witnessed that truly epic choke at the 2018 Asian Games. And yet, the team soldiered on and went on to play some extraordinary matches to at the Tokyo Olympics to seal a historic bronze medal. India had suddenly turned into a side who just won't lay down in that tournament. But, a lot of the positive vibes that fans may have carried off from that tournament was subsequently dashed at the 2023 World Cup, where they crashed out in the crossovers. That World Cup almost seemed like a reminder of the perils of taking India's hockey victories for granted. And hence, even though this team has scored averaged over 10 goals per match thus far at the Asian Games, even though they cruised to victory at the Asian Champions Trophy earlier this year where they faced pretty much the same opponents as they are in this tournament, even though they are ranked third and South Korea are 12th, keep your fingers crossed folks. This could be a romp in India's favour, a grind in India's favour, or a grind that ends in possibly one of the biggest upsets of these Games.
