Deeply hurt by the Indian hockey team's display so far in the Olympic Games, national coach Michael Nobbs termed the side's performance till date as 'unacceptable'.
Surprised at the sudden slump in form of the players, who were doing well only three weeks back during their European tour, Nobbs admitted that something has gone wrong.
"Our performance to date is not acceptable," said Nobbs. "Where do we go from here? I, of course, am completely disappointed as we showed so much promise during the past 12 months. Preparations and team building were going according to schedule and our results had showed we were improving. What is going wrong?" the coach asked.
Nobbs said that the Indians failed to improve on their grey areas. "The same things that we all knew...lack of finishing in front of goals and leaking easy defensive goals have proved to be costly. May be we were hoping it would be all alright on the night. Well, this is the Olympic Games and this is where
as an athlete you get the chance to show that you deserve to be here and establish yourself as an Olympian."
