On Tuesday, India suffered a heartbreaking 2-5 loss to Belgium in the men's hockey semi-finals. India will now compete for the bronze medal against either Australia or Germany, who will meet later in the day in the second semi-final. India fell behind early in the first quarter when Belgium converted a penalty corner in the second minute to take the lead. India finished the first half strongly, fighting back to take a 2-1 lead after the first 15 minutes of the game.

India's goals were scored by Mandeep Singh and Harmanpreet Singh. Belgium, ranked second in the world, equalized in the second quarter thanks to a goal by Alexander Hendrickx. The third quarter ended goalless, but Belgium proved too good on the day, scoring three goals in the final 15 minutes of the semi-final match to book their place in the Tokyo Olympics final.

India withdrew their star goalkeeper PR Sreejesh in the final minutes of the semi-final match, trailing by two goals, but the move backfired as Belgium scored another goal to seal the game.
