Bhubaneswar: Spain has registered a record-breaking victory with a margin of 17-0 over the USA in a Pool C game on the second day of the Junior Hockey World Cup in Odisha.
This win has put Spain at the top of the list for the highest victory margin in the history of the tournament. This record was previously held by Argentina, who defeated Egypt by 14-0 in a Pool D game earlier on Thursday.

However, Spain's dominant display of skill meant that the record set by Argentina was broken in a matter of a few hours.
Indian Hockey team also dominated the day and registered a 13-1 win against Canada in their second pool B match after facing a 4-5 loss against France in their first game on Wednesday.
In another pool C game played on Thursday, the Netherlands registered a 12-5 win over Korea.
After defeating India in their first match, France continued their winning ways after registering a 7-1 win over Poland.
