Harmanpreet Singh and Varun Kumar scored from penalty corners in the 21st and 24th minutes before Shamsher Singh made it 3-0 in the 28th minute with a field goal.

Mandeep Singh (32nd) and Akashdeep Singh (41st) completed the tally for India.

The result:

India 5 (Harmanpreet 21-pc, Varun 24-pc, Shamsher 28, Mandeep 32, Akashdeep 41) bt France 0.
