India chief coach Graham Reid on Wednesday gave credit to his defenders for propelling the team into the semi-finals of the FIH Odisha Hockey Men's Junior World Cup 2021. "Yes, our defence today was much better than it was in the first game against France. We are doing a lot of work on it. Our marking was tighter today, maybe not in the first ten minutes of the game. I was just talking to Vivek (skipper Vivek Sagar Prasad) about it and the good part is that we know that we can play much better, you know," said Reid in the post-match press conference.
