Melbourne: India will once again return empty-handed from the Champions Trophy after losing 2-3 in the bronze medal play-off against arch-rivals Pakistan, who walked away with their first medal in the event in eight years.

Pakistan scored through Muhammad Rizwan (22nd minute), Shafqat Rasool (41st) and Muhammad Ateeq (66th) to overcome India, for whom V Raghunath (7th) and Rupinder Pal Singh (70th) scored through penalty corners.

Three-time Champions Trophy winners Pakistan’s last medal came at Lahore in 2004, where too they won the bronze by overcoming India in the play-off.

“It’s a good effort to make the semifinals at the Champions Trophy after the disappointing show at the Olympics,” said Nobbs after theloss on Sunday.

Meanwhile, a golden goal by Kieran Govers gave Australia their fifth successive title as the hosts prevailed 2-1 over the Netherlands in the final. (PTI)
