London: India put up an impressive first-half display to dismantle Canada 3-0 for their second consecutive victory in the Hockey World League (HWL) Semi Final Pool B here on Saturday.All of India's goals came from field play as they sent a warning to their Sunday's opponent Pakistan, who were blanked 0-6 by Canada on Friday.

India opened the game at break-neck speed and took just five minutes to break the deadlock when SV Sunil rolled the ball from the right only to see the ball moved in after hitting the far post.

Canada found the going tough against the Indians. The 2014 Asian Games champions didn't allow the Canadians to play the long balls and deep aerial balls that they did with great effect against Pakistan as India pressed high and intercepted the long balls really well.

A successful deflection from Akashdeep Singh, who shrugged off goalkeeper David Carter, five minutes later gave India a 2-0 lead. India consolidated further by taking a 3-0 lead as a soft turnover in the midfield allowed India to launch a fierce counter-attack in the 18th minute.
