Indian Men's Hockey team upped their game against Ireland to beat them 4-1 and recover from a massive upset caused a day earlier in a fifth-sixth match of the ongoing Sultan Azlan Shah Cup in Ipoh, Malaysia on Saturday.

Ireland managed to score a consolation goal in the final quarter of the game when Dale scored a well taken goal after splitting the Indian defense.

Ramandeep Singh (10th minute) and Amit Rohidas (26th) scored for India, who needed a win to seal their place in the bronze-medal play-off, while Shane O'Donoghue (24th), Sean Murray (36th) and Lee Cole (42th) scored for Ireland.

India denied Ireland its first penalty corner with a video referral that was ruled in India's favour.

India won a penalty corner in the 10th minute.

India began the third quarter with a penalty in the 32nd minute.

India's next goal came off Gurjant's sticks in the 37th minute. It was brilliant play by Talwinder Singh who received a good pass from Simranjeet and later connected it to Gurjant who made no mistake in putting it into the post.

India were awarded two more penalty corners later in the final quarter but failed to score both.
