India returned from the locker room with a much more aggressive approach and created the first chance of the second half in the 38th minute. However, Tirkey’s shot from the edge of the D was easily saved by Bubolz. Crone sustained a small head injury whilst clearing from an Indian attack, but was able to play on after some minor medical attention. In this period Germany made a lot of unforced errors and consequently lost possession, while India remained the more dominant team. Suddenly came a counter attack, through Montag, Witthaus and Fürste but this was saved by the goal keeper.
A reverse hit by Tirkey in the 49th minute threatened the germans, but Bubolz remained strong. India were given their first corner in the 50th minute. K Singh’s shot was deflected by the goal keeper towards Weß. The resulting corner was taken in exactly the same way by the Indians and was finally converted by Shivendra Sing through a second attack. Unlike with the first Indian goal, This seemed to wake the German team up and within minutes Weißenborn came through the baseline on the right and found an Indian foot. This time C. Zeller feined a shot and moved to the left lifting the ball slightly into the goal.
The match gained in momentum as it went on. Though Germany created more pressure on the Indian defense, the equalizing goal was practically gifted to the Indians. A poor pass on the quarter line was carelessly lost to the Indians, two of whom played the ball past the defense giving Shivendra Singh an easy push into the goal.
With 5 minutes left on the clock Germany went on the offensive again and were rewarded just 2 minutes from the final whistle. Good preparation on the left was finished off with a dive across the goal line by C. Zeller, giving him his second goal of the day.
Overall, it was the greater control the German team had over the game that gave them their victory over an evenly matched opponent.
