Indian fans are dreaming after their women's hockey team’s 1-o win over favourites Australia that paved the way for their first ever Olympics semi-fina where they are to meet Argentina on Wednesday.

The Indian women’s hockey team scripted history on August 2 qualifying for the Olympic Games semifinals for the first time, beating three-time champions Australia by a solitary goal here.

A day after the Indian men’s team entered the Olympic semifinals following a 49-year gap, the world no. 9 women’s side also entered the history books with a phenomenally gritty performance.

Coming into the match, the odds were against India as world no. 2 Australia, a mighty unbeaten opponent, awaited them in the last-four round.

The Indian side, determined to prove a point, produced a strong and brave performance to eke out the narrow win over the Hockeyroos.

Naturally on such a momentous occasion, everyone was desperate to share their thoughts on the morning, so let's dig in to some of the best action from Twitter.
